Laura Brunelli runs her excellent estate from a perspective of finesse and purity. With vineyards in two sections of Montalcino, the final blend has both weight and finesse, earth and fruit, wild berries and complete Sangiovese depth, all wrapped around a core of brilliant and balanced acidity.

“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.
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.”

“These are simply gorgeous, delicious Brunelli made with careful attention and the utmost respect for nature that require not only full time dedication and supervision, but, to use another one of the most abused words in winespeak – passion.”
– Kerin O’Keefe, Brunello di Montalcino University of California Press 2012
