“Le Chiuse delivers an impeccable wine that beautifully captures the classic side of this elegant vintage. The bouquet takes a minute or two to reach cruising altitude. Once it does, it reveals wild cherry, rose hip, blanched almond and sassy licorice or spice. It is aged in large oak casks for 38 months, and the fruit is farmed organically. This is an absolute breakout vintage for Le Chiuse, and the wine already shows the textural richness for prolonged aging. Bravo!” - The Wine Advocate.
Don’t wait for this sultry delight to get away.

Wine Advocate

This is a terrific wine that performs with grace, elegance and lengthy endurance. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva stands out in my mind as one of the most enjoyable riservas I have tasted from this classic vintage. The aromas are balanced and neatly tucked in. The effect it seamless and smooth with a virtual continuum of wild berry, rose, spice and autumnal aromas. Nothing is out of place and the wine feels glossy and polished in terms of mouthfeel. The tannins are firm but expertly integrated, giving this wine a prolonged future drinking window.
