From the Winery:

Surely Brunello di Montalcino is our most representative wine, not only because it boasts the largest production but above all because it contains the true soul of Le Chiuse.

Given the origins of Le Chiuse and the importance of the soil, the approach is necessarily traditional in style, aimed at preserving our history and terroir in the DNA of wine.
The harvest generally takes place earlier than the average of the area thus maintaining a good acidity to preserve the elegance and verticality of the wine and helping its longevity.
To obtain the right structure and volume, only medium-small bunches are used which, once selected manually, in less than half an hour, are de-stemmed and planted by gravity in steel and cement vats.
Fermentation takes place with the aid of indigenous yeasts only in order to develop its organoleptic characteristics in the wine. The maceration period is about 20 days, characterized by repeated pumping over and punching down for a better polyphenolic extraction.
The aging in wood is carried out exclusively in large 30HL Slavonian oak barrels for a period of about 3 years; the will is therefore to allow the wine to breathe but without being excessively influenced by the wood, respecting its natural evolution.
It is bottled and aged for about a year before being marketed in rooms naturally suitable for aging.
Every year we try to obtain a wine that can enclose the elegance of Sangiovese within the typical structure of Montalcino, expressing Le Chiuse in its essence.
