Le Chiuse Brunello is a clear wine, bright garnet red in color. It has an intense persistent fragrance, pure and full-bodied. Various fragrances can be recognize, from forest fruits to light vanilla. To the taste the wine is smooth and elegant, dry with an excellent persistent of aroma.
Lorenzo Magnelli opted to pick early to avoid opulence in 2017. Along with gentler punch-downs and fewer pump-overs, he aged the wine for less time in wood – 30 months rather than 36 – as he felt it didn’t need too much oxygen. Vibrancy of expression is palpable in the tangle of spices, woodland berries, earthy mushroom and forest growth. The palate is sturdy but not aggressive as well-composed tannins sweep across the palate. Perhaps all that's missing in the 2017 is the extra detail and length of some of the previous vintages.
