The wine officially got its name In the mid-1900s, when Alberto Piccolomini d’Aragona wed Elda Ciacci, countess of the property who oversaw its winemaking operations.

Wow. Very, very rich, with blackberry, grilled meat and fresh porcini character. Full-bodied, with thick yet refined and silky tannins and a long, long finish. A real beauty. Wonderful. Best after 2005. 750 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 1999 Ciacci Piccolomini d Aragona Brunello di Montalcino Vigna di Pianrosso 1500ml
