Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

Brunello Riserva comes from 100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes from vineyards trained using horizontal spurred cordon for vines that are mostly 15 years old with a density of 4,500 plants per hectare. Grapes are hand harvested during the first two weeks of October, direcly discarding any damaged bunches. Fermentation takes place in the cellar in 5,000/10,000 liter capacity stainless steel tanks, lasting between 18 and 20 days with daily pumping over and punching down of the must and temperatures controlled by an external cooling system. The wine is then refined in oak barrels for four years.


Brunello di Montalcino

Brunello di Montalcino Brunello Le Chiuse is clear and bright with a vivid garnet-red color. Its bouquet is intense and persistent, with scents recalling ripe fruit, jam and vanilla. On the palate the wine is round,elegant and persistent. It continues to improve with long aging. Serve at 18-20°C after the bottle has been left for at least 24 hours at room temperature and opened a few hours before serving. Each vintage has its own characteristics with subtle differences in bouquet and flavor. From the best vintages, 20% of Brunello production is left to age another year in barrels and further in bottle to become Riserva.


Rosso di Montalcino

Rosso di Montalcino is made following the same procedures as for Brunello from 100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes from the same vineyards. The difference is that the Rosso isn’t aged as long. Its color is a bright and clear deep ruby red. The bouquet is intense, fresh and fragrant of fruits and berries. The flavor is dry and full with notable persistence on the palate. Though it can age well, it is ready to drink on release. Serve at 18°C.



Spumante Brut “Stellare”

This classic method sparkling wine is the first of its kind to be produced entirely in Montalcino. It is designed to combine the characteristics of Sangiovese Grosso with the elegance of a bottle-fermented sparkling wine. Although created outside the usual canons, it expresses the unique personality of the Sangiovese variety. Early harvesting results in a wine of greater acidity and fresher scents and flavors. Yet, after aging for 24 months in bottles on the lees, the wine shows complexity in its plush flavors while maintaining balanced elegance.



Grappa di Vinacce di Brunello Riserva

Our Grappa is made by distillation of the fermented pomace that comes exclusively from Brunello grapes from our vinyeards. The fresh pomace is lightly pressed and processed through vacuum distillaltion in modern stills to become a product that fully respects the great tradition of Italian grappa. Aging in wood results in round and elegant texture while maintaining the pure original aromas of a grappa that stands out for remarkably delicate fragrance and flavor. Produced in small quantities, this exquisite grappa has 43% alcohol.  





Olio extra vergine di Oliva

Our extra vergine olive oil comes from olives grown exclusively at Le Chiuse. It derives from different olilve varieties, mainly Frantoio, Leccino and Pendolino, from nearly 6 hectares of trees at an altitude of about 600 meters. The olives are gathered in November, when still not too ripe, in order to make an oil rich in nutritive elements and vitamins. The cold pressing and milling of the under-ripe olives results in lower yields but superior quality. The oil is not filtered, as in the past, to retain its natural character and authentic flavor.
