Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2017 Pinot Nero di Toscana Il Chiuso reminds me of Pinot Noir made in warm climates such as California. This was a record year in terms of heat and drought, and those adverse conditions have impacted this very delicate grape variety. Ripe notes of cassis and blackcurrant are followed by spice, tar and smoke. There are robust floral and fruity notes that peek through the wine's dense fruity fiber.
