Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

Located in the south east of the Montalcino region close to the beautiful medieval village of Castelnuovo dell’Abate, the estate of Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona can trace its roots back to the 17th century. The Ciacci family owned the estate for over a hundred years until the death of Countess Elda Ciacci, who left the property to her long-standing and well-respected estate manager Giuseppe Bianchini. His hard work and dedication has been continued by his son and daughter, Paolo and Lucia, who have developed the property and wines to their current respected position. The wines receive global acclaim thanks to the commitment to the terroir and traditional winemaking practices and rank Ciacci Piccolomini D’Aragona amongst the greatest producers of Brunello di Montalcino.

The vineyards of the estate’s Sangiovese vines are located on the rolling Tuscan hillsides bordered by the Orcia River which helps moderate the temperature of this hot dry part of the region. The altitude of the vineyard varies from 240 to 360 meters above sea level, also contributing to the restrained, refreshing style of this 100% Sangiovese wine. Fermentation occurs in temperature-controlled stainless steel and glass concrete vats, followed by ageing in Slavonian oak barrels for more than 24 months, followed by over 8 months of bottle refinement.

Tasting Note:
The bouquet is intense, fruit-forward, spicy and floral with hints of red berry fruits enriched by delicate spicy notes. Warm, soft and very well balanced on the palate with soft tannins and a long finish.
