One of the HOTTEST producers in Montalcino the last few years. I have several half bottles of the 14 Brunello ($39.99) if you wanted to take a stab on one of those, but the 18 is here and just 2 cases at the supplier. These won’t be here for long. The 2016 Brunello is going for $150+ if you can find it, it's all grey market out of California.

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.
