Brother and sister team Laura and Adriano Brunelli bought back their father’s old property – Le Chiuse di Sotto – to the north of Montalsin in 1987 with its 2ha of Sangiovese. They added the 4.5ha of Podernovone on Montalcino’s South-Eastern slopes in the mid 90s where they completed their ecological winery, using modern solar along with some ancient Etruscan building methods to sustainably limit the building’s carbon footprint.
Le Chiuse di Sotto – Gianni Brunelli Rosso di Montalcino 2019
Deep ruby colour with concentrated bramble fruit, succulent cherries and blood orange. A very juicy palate with refreshing acidity sound balance and fine tannic structure. Enjoy now but has the potential to keep and blossom into a more complex wine up to the next 10 years.
The vintage 2019 produced grapes of excellent fragrance with persuasive fruit notes. The blend of Rosso di Montalcino comes in greater proportion from the Le Chiuse vineyards and from vineyard La Quercia. This vintage gave expression of great freshness
and aromatic complexity, based on a good but not predominant structure. 10 months in Slavonian oak casks of 5, 10, 21 and 25hl
