Category Red Wine
Region Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino
Brand Le Chiuse
Alcohol/vol 14%
Deep strong ruby red with bright garnet hues. Brilliant. A bouquet of 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. The palate if 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. Perfect with every roasted meat and game, braised beef, aged cheeses and all the tasty dishes.

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.

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.

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. Some 15,000 bottles will be released in February 2020.
