Le Chiuse Rosso di Montalcino 2019
A tiny 6-hectare estate, Le Chiuse was split off from the Biondi-Santi estate in 1993 when it was inherited by Simonetta Valiani, the great-granddaughter of Ferruccio Biondi-Santi. It is now considered among Montalcino’s greatest producers. All farming is certified organic.
The Rosso is made from 70% Sangiovese grown around the winery and 30% Sangiovese from the Pullera plot near Biondi-Santi. It is aged 14 months in used, large Slavonian oak casks. Bright, lively, and layered with red berries, violet, and spice.
