Gianni Brunelliresults 1-1 of 1
Gianni Brunelli, a man of many interests, established ”Osteria Le Logge” in Siena (which has become one of the top restaurants of the city). In 1987 he returned to Montalcino and purchased Le Chiuse di Sotto, an estate that had belonged to his father Dino, with two hectares of vineyards standing at 200 meters above sea level in the northern part of the area. He replanted most of the vines in 1989 but still has a small plot of older holdings dating back to his fathers original 1947 plantings. A few years ago he expanded with the purchase the ”Podernovone” vineyard, located further south in Montalcino. Like Paecnti, his vineyard sites allow him to blend north and south to achieve great balance, no matter what the vintage brings. The property has a magnificent view on Monte Amiata and is endowed with 4.5 hectares standing at 350 meters above sea level. The soil of Podernovone, made up of calcareous-marl and schist, reflects light and heat, leading to a warmer site. Le Chiuse di Sotto is cool and airy, bringing bright acidity to the blend. After Gianni passed away in 2008, his wife Laura, who was already working at the estate, took the reins. Paolo Vagaggini, one of the most sought after enologists in Tuscany makes the wine.
