Ferruccio Biondi Santi inventor of Sangiovese Grosso clone (Brunello), coded BBS11 after him (Brunello Biondi Santi)

Visit the most historic vineyards in the world, the ones where the original Brunello grape variety was selected and where the mother-vines are STILL the SAME, then enter the cellars where a superior type of Brunello Riserva was conceived, the one aged 10 years instead of 6.

In the cellar with the owner you’ll taste directly from the barrels wines that the public from all over the world will only see in years and you’ll be guided in a vertical tasting of 3 vintages of Brunello only possible here.

Lunch at a classic but “updated” Tuscan restaurant, in a terrace with a breathtaking view over the hills of Montalcino.

Menu has been tailored by the Chef: classic Tuscan but modernized and designed specifically to perfectly match the wines of Le Chiuse and enhance their exceptional characteristics.

LE CHIUSE Brunello di Montalcino 2016 *

Pretty strawberry, currant and cherry flavors take center stage in this taut and linear red, flanked by floral, mineral and tobacco notes, with fine balance and intensity on a slim frame. This is ample, yet the refined tannins provide structure. Best from 2024 through 2048. 15,000 cases made, 1,000 cases imported. —BS
