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 - 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.
Wine Spectator 88 points - 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
