Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2017

Le Chiuse


This 100% Sangiovese Grosso is planted to one hectare of 60-70 year old vines. The grapes are harvest by hand the first week of October. They are then crushed and transferred to tank by gravity. They endure 15 day maceration / fermentation period (29C) with frequent punch-down of the cap during the first week to promote extraction. The wine is then racked 2/3 times until March, when it is transferred to oak. It is then aged 3-4 months in Allier and Slavonian botte. 5% of free-run juice is removed to encourage concentration.

Additional Information

“The wine-making process for this red wine is the same as the Brunello, the grapes and type of vines used are again of 100% large Sangiovese, but without the need of ageing. It has a shining, clear appearance and is ruby red in colour. It has a good fragrance and intensity with the recognisable scent of small fresh fruits. To the taste, the wine is dry with a good persistence. It is ready to drink, even if kept for some time.” –Simonetta Valiani

    "Violet , wild berry, tilled earth and botanical herb aromas shape the nose on this enticingly fragrant, linear red. The juicy savory palate doles out succulent Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry and star anise alongside polished tannins."
