Winemaker Notes:

“Intense garnet red, bright with transparent borders. Intriguing nose, at first a mixture of licorice and juniper berries, after which underbrush berries with balsamic notes. The palate is supple and velvety, sapid and enveloping, it is dynamic on the palate due to the tannins, the finish is extremely pleasant, persistent and spicy.┬áPairs well with red meat, game, and seasoned cheese.”

Critical Acclaim:

“100 points.

“The Gianni Brunelli Le Chiuse di Sotto 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is a stunning wine with so much vitality, life and energy. It shows a brazen level of clarity and frankness. If you seek the truth in Sangiovese, I think you find it here. This Brunello unfolds to lasting purity, elegance and length. It is luminous and radiant. When tasted next to the 2015 Riserva from this estate (something I did on multiple passes), I continued to recognize the lifted and exciting personality of this wine next to the broader and heavier character of the Riserva. This Brunello shows extreme precision and focus, both to the bouquet and the mouthfeel. Wild berry, blue flower and licorice converge to perfection, and it’s impossible to beat this quality at this price.” – Wine Advocate
