Wine EnthusiastShowing the firm's hallmark of remarkable elegance, this fragrant, linear red opens with enticing scents of red berry, blue flower, rose, white pepper and crushed herb. The vibrant palate boasts compelling finesse and tension, delivering juicy red cherry, strawberry compote, star anise and a hint of tobacco. Taut refined tannins and bright acidity provide balance and seamless support. It screams out for food. Drink 2021-2029.

Wine AdvocateLe Chiuse's 2014 Brunello di Montalcino (with 7,500 bottles produced) offers a nice progression of aromas and flavors that spread easily over the palate. The primary fruit is very much intact with fresh tones of summer cherry, plum and cassis. Complexity is added thanks to subtle layers of smoke, spice and aniseed. Le Chiuse has been producing very impressive wines in recent vintages. My admiration goes to the team for a wine of this immediate character and quality, produced in one of the most challenging vintages of recent years.
