Located in the north of Montalcino, the Le Chiuse estate lies on the north-east hillside of Montosoli, at about 300 meters elevation, and includes a total of 7ha of vineyards all planted to Sangiovese Grosso. Le Chiuse played a key role in the vineyard holdings of the legendary Biondi-Santi family since the late 18th Century when they used these vineyards for their Riserva bottling.
Handed down, generation to generation the current owner, Simonetta Valiani is the great granddaughter of Ferruccio Biondi-Santi. Simonetta regained full ownership of the property in 1993 when she decided to produce her own wine under the label “Brunello Le Chiuse” with her husband, Nicolò Magnelli and their son, Lorenzo. Until then, the vineyards were rented to her uncle, Franco Biondi-Santi, still used for their Riserva bottling.
Join us as we talk with Lorenzo Magnelli about Montalcino, the Le Chiuse estate, and of course the Brunellos.
