Le Chiuse Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015

Tuscany, Italy

98 pts. Wine Enthusiast:

"Aromas of woodland berry, new leather, blue flower and a baby powder shape the enticing nose on this fragrant red. Juicy and bright, the polished, delicious palate doles out crushed raspberry, cherry compote and baking spice alongside taut, refined tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced while a licorice note graces the finish."

95 pts. James Suckling:

"Wonderful aromas of blueberries, lavender, violet and sandalwood. Full-bodied, extremely balanced and refined with beautifully polished tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Shows tension and focus. Complexity, too. Lovely length to this. Better to start drinking after 2022."

95 pts. Wine Advocate:

"The Le Chuise 2015 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a slightly shy and timid bouquet. My feeling is that this reticent quality will serve the wine very well as it continues the course of its aging. The bouquet shows mild fruit with some potting soil, leather, tar and licorice. This Brunello from Le Chiuse is definitely characterized by a savory side as well with a pretty point of saltiness that you don't commonly find in its peers. This is a true beauty—the wine is elegant, shiny and glossy from the inside out. Fruit comes from an eight-hectare parcel with vines that are 26 years old."

95 pts. Vinous:

"The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino seems reluctant at this early stage, yet presents a savory expression of Sangiovese, with dusty black cherries backed by an almost-rustic mix of leather, crushed stone and animal musk. On the palate, silky textures meld into with woodland berry and earth tones, along with notes of tobacco, savory herbs and saline-minerals. Vibrant acids add energy and sweetness to the fruit, along with a mouthwatering quality, as youthful tannins collect on the senses and slowly dry out its profile. The finish is long, structured, and firmly rooted in the earth. Constantly evolving in the glass, this is a real powerhouse Brunello."

95 pts. Wine Spectator:

"A beam of black cherry and black currant fruit is at the heart of this red. Supple and balanced, this stays long and complex on the finish, as earth, iron and sanguine notes emerge. A dense swath of tannins lines the finish. Best from 2022 through 2040. 2,500 cases made, 800 cases imported."

FROM THE WINERY

Characters: Another great year which was characterized by ideal climatic conditions for the vegetative growth of the vine and the ripening of the grapes.

Grapes: 100% sangiovese grosso.

Vintage: During the last week of September grapes have been hand harvested, selected and quickly carried in baskets (20 kilos) to the close winery.

By the gravity, grapes, which have been previously destalked and softly crushed, get into thermos-controlled steel tanks. Then fermentation is made by natural yeast always under 29C° and maceration was made for 20 days.

Ageing: After several pouring off into steel tanks, in spring wine was put into 20 HL Slavonian oak barrels for 36 months. It was then reassembled in a big steel tank and finally bottled in June 2019.

Colour: Deep strong ruby red with bright garnet hues. Brilliant.

Bouquet: Leather and flint in the background delight the typical hints of Marasca cherry and violet, which are precise and really intense. Later hints of tobacco and caramel come out and make this wine complex and fascinating.


Flavour: Greatly structured, sapid and fresh. Its great balance makes this wine very charming and elegant. Its fascinating tannic net balances the considerable alcoholic strength. The result is an important and balanced wine with a long and persistent end.
Food matches: Brunello di Montalcino 2015 is perfect with every roasted meat and game, braised beef, aged cheeses and all the tasty dishes.
Alcohol: 14-15%
