Deep ruby color with concentrated bramble fruit, succulent cherries and blood orange. A very juicy palate with refreshing acidity sound balance and fine tannic structure. Enjoy now but has the potential to keep and blossom into a more complex wine up to the next 10 years.
The 2018 vintage began with a rainy spring that offset the water shortages of the previous year. In this vintage, an early cleaning of the soil under the vines was very important in order to minimize the potential development of pathogens, with good ventilation of the entire canopy and clusters. At the time of the harvest, the grapes had a good skin integrity with a very positive balance of analytical values, however our yields did not exceed the quantity of 55 quintals per hectare. The pH tends to be low with fairly marked acidity, promising wines of good freshness with long life and evolution.
“The 2018 Rosso di Montalcino from Le Chiuse di Sotto takes Rosso to a whole new level, with a bouquet that pulls you closer to the glass. This is showing mineral-infused black cherry, with moist earth tones, fall leaves, green stems, and hints of animal musk. Strawberry, leaning toward cranberry, citrus-tinged spices, hints of tannin and pretty red florals resonate throughout the finish, leaving an impression more of a Brunello than a Rosso. Simply stunning.” –92 Points, Vinous
