2017 Le Chiuse Brunello di Montalcino

Wild herbs, crushed pomegranates, dusty rose and savory spice define the wildly exotic 2017 Brunello di Montalcino. Its textures are silky and pliant, but with a vibrant streak of acidity and mineral tones that add a more grippy yet jovial feel, as potent red fruits and lavender tones slowly saturate toward the close. Fine tannins come forward through the medium-length finale, as this tapers off to hints of sour citrus, rose and clove. I’ve watched the 2017 improve in bottle after first tasting it in Montalcino in July, and then again in New York City in the fall of 2021. The evolution is striking, as is the balance that Le Chiuse has obtained from the 2017 vintage. 95/100 Vinous (Eric Guido)

The Le Chiuse 2017 Brunello di Montalcino (made with certified organic fruit) exhibits a silky and elegant profile that only a handful of estates in the appellation achieve with consistency. This is the desired direction of Brunello as a whole I believe, and it's nice to see these successful results in a difficult, hot vintage such as 2017. The wine is silky and glossy on the palate with wildflowers, berry and forest floor. Production is 15,500 bottles. 95/100 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Monica Larner) 

One of the best wines of the vintage, this stunner opens with compelling aromas of new leather, forest floor, perfumed berry and menthol. Full-bodied and elegantly structured, the delicious palate delivers crushed raspberry, ripe Marasca cherry, baking spice and licorice set against firm, refined tannins. It boasts remarkable freshness and balance for the hot vintage. Drink 2025–2032. 97/100 Wine Enthusiast (Kerin O' Keefe) 

Offers key themes of black cherry, blackberry and violet aromas and flavors, with mineral, tobacco and bitter almond accents. Solidly built, with dense tannins expanding on the finish. Overall, there is a sense of elegance here, with a silkiness and persistence. Best from 2025 through 2042. 2,500 cases made, 600 cases imported. 94/100 WineSpectator (Bruce Sanderson)
