"The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is striking. Sweet red cherries, flowers, tobacco, cedar and worn-in leather are some of the many aromas and flavors that take shape in the glass. The 2007 impresses for its textural depth and volume, both of which have been achieved while retaining considerable Sangiovese character. Ripe, silky tannins lurk beneath the fruit, but there is so much concentration they are hard to notice. The estate gave the Brunello 30 months in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.
I was deeply impressed with the two Brunelli I tasted from Le Chiuse di Sotto. Sadly, proprietor Gianni Brunelli passed away in late 2008, but he left behind a rich legacy, including these two captivating wines." ~ AG

"A wine with ripe fruit with cherry and raspberry character and just a hint of cream. Full body, with velvety tannins. Delicious fruit. Better after 2013. - Wine Enthusiast (02/13)"
" Gianni Brunelli, a man of many interests, established "Osteria Le Logge" in Siena (which has become one of the top restaurants of the city). In 1987 he returned to Montalcino and purchased Le Chiuse di Sotto, an estate that had belonged to his father Dino, with two hectares of vineyards standing at 200 meters above sea level in the northern part of the area. He replanted most of the vines in 1989 but still has a small plot of older holdings dating back to his father’s original 1947 plantings.
A few years ago he expanded with the purchase the "Podernovone" vineyard, located further south in Montalcino. Like Paecnti, his vineyard sites allow him to blend north and south to achieve great balance, no matter what the vintage brings. The property has a magnificent view on Monte Amiata and is endowed with 4.5 hectares standing at 350 meters above sea level. The soil of Podernovone, made up of calcareous-marl and schist, reflects light and heat, leading to a warmer site. Le Chiuse di Sotto is cool and airy, bringing bright acidity to the blend. After Gianni passed away in 2008, his wife Laura, who was already working at the estate, took the reins. Paolo Vagaggini, one of the most sought after enologists in Tuscany makes the wine.
