A harmonious and crisp red with notes of wild strawberry, cherry and blueberry that are deftly integrated with juicy and firm tannins on the complex and layered finish.

 Wine Advocate 88 points (Aug 2013)
The 2011 Il Chiuso is an extremely floral and feminine expression with blue flower, wet earth and almond marzipan. A general feeling of elegance reinforces the streamlined mouthfeel. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2018.

This red shows good depth to its flavors of cherry, raspberry and light black pepper. Fresh and harmonious, the wine displays a moderate structure and finish. Sangiovese and Pinot Noir. Drink now through 2017. 300 cases imported. –BS

Technical notes
First released in 2009, Il Chiuso is a blend of Sangiovese and Pinot Noir. The Pinot Noir was harvested from a 10 acre parcel of 27 year old vines located in the San Lorenzo Valley while the Sangiovese was picked from younger estate vines. Each varietal was hand-picked and destemmed and vinified separately in stainless steel tanks with regular pump overs. After 20 days of maceration, the wines were racked into neutral barriques for fermentation and aging. After blending, the wine was returned to barrel for six months.
