Winemaker Notes

The wine-making process for this red wine is the same as the Brunello, the grapes and type of vines used are again of 100% large Sangiovese, but without the need of ageing. It has a shining, clear appearance and is ruby red in color. It has a good fragrance and intensity with the recognizable scent of small fresh fruits. To the taste, the wine is dry with a good persistence. It is ready to drink, even if kept for some time

Wine Spectator
Purity is the theme here, delivering cherry, strawberry, spice and graphite flavors married to an elegant frame. Firms up nicely, suggesting evolution over the short term. Drink now through 2023.

Le Chiuse Winery Image
Located in North of Montalcino, the Le Chiuse estate lies on the north-east hillside of Montosoli. Le Chiuse played a key role in the vineyard holdings of the legendary Biondi-Santi family since the late 18th Century when they used these vineyards for their Riserva bottling. Handed down, generation to generation the current owner, Simonetta Valiani is the great granddaughter of Ferruccio Biondi-Santi. Simonetta regained full ownership of the property in 1993 when she decided to produce her own wine under the label “Brunello Le Chiuse” with her husband, Nicolò Magnelli and their son, Lorenzo. Until then, the vineyards were rented to her uncle, Franco Biondi-Santi, still used for their Riserva bottling. Together, the family restored the farmhouse buildings, the chapel, built a new underground-cellar and planted new vineyards with traditional methods necessary to produce classically styled Brunello di Montalcino.

Famous for its bold, layered and long-lived red, Brunello di Montalcino, the town of Montalcino is about 70 miles south of Florence, and has a warmer and drier climate than that of its neighbor, Chianti. The Sangiovese grape is king here, as it is in Chianti, but Montalcino has its own clone called Brunello.

The Brunello vineyards of Montalcino blanket the rolling hills surrounding the village and fan out at various elevations, creating the potential for Brunello wines expressing different styles. From the valleys, where deeper deposits of clay are found, come wines typically bolder, more concentrated and rich in opulent black fruit. The hillside vineyards produce wines more concentrated in red fruits and floral aromas; these sites reach up to over 1,600 feet and have shallow soils of rocks and shale.

Brunello di Montalcino by law must be aged a minimum of four years, including two years in barrel before realease and once released, typically needs more time in bottle for its drinking potential to be fully reached. The good news is that Montalcino makes a “baby brother” version. The wines called Rosso di Montalcino are often made from younger vines, aged for about a year before release, offer extraordinary values and are ready to drink young.
