In 1985, Giuseppe Bianchini began his quest for quality. Moments after the passing of Countess Piccolomini, Giuseppe learned that he, the sole employee who passionately cared about her vines, inherited the vast Piccolomini wine estate. Evidence of his appreciation and commitment to the Piccolomini legend can be found in the glass - each wine is a tribute to the gracious Countess. Highly regarded palates consistently rank the Ciacci Piccolomini wines in the top 10th percentile - with good reason. Giuseppe believes his strict adherence to sustainable growing practices has significantly contributed to the vibrancy of fruit and the depth of complexity in his wines over the years. Without doubt, these wines speak of flawless quality and exhibit Tuscan typicity crafted in a modern style.
The estate's 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso possesses striking depth as endless layers of sweet, perfumed fruit emerge with tons of grace. This, too, is an intense, full-bodied wine. The balance here is utterly exceptional, and the wine's sheer plumpness makes for a highly rewarding glass of Brunello. Succulent dark cherries, spices, underbrush, minerals and new leather come to life as the wine sits in the glass, yet this remains a backward, structured Brunello in need of serious bottle age. The Pianrosso is a terrific effort from proprietor Paolo Bianchini. Ciacci's Pianrosso is an old-vines selection that spent 36 months in Slavonian oak. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
Very fruity aromas of raspberry, plum and fresh flowers lead to a full-bodied palate, with round, soft tannins and lots of juicy, delicious fruit. Very attractive. Hard not to drink it now. Best from 2010 through 2015.
The stylish, cask-aged 2001 Brunello de Montalcino Pianrosso opens with a floral, aromatic nose followed by sweet, perfumed red fruit that blossoms onto the palate with notable expansiveness in a superb display of finesse and elegance, closing with fine, supple tannins. Though tempting to drink today, it will be even better in a few years and will drink well to age twenty. It is one of the vintage's great wines. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2021.
This is gorgeous with seductive cedar, tobacco, berry and Indian spices on the nose. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a tobacco, coffee and berry aftertaste. Refined. Best after 2007.
Pretty raspberry and cream aromas convey richness, and it is indeed an easy drinker with warmth and body to it. Core flavors of strawberry, cherry cough drop, and brown sugar are sweet and likable, but ultimately the wine doesn't have that last kick to push it to another level.
Lush berries, dried lavender, briars and smoked bacon. Slides like silk across the palate. Full-bodied, the ripe tannins and medium acidity shape this wine into an elegant package.
"This is a very rich Sangiovese on the nose with dried black cherries and strawberries. Lots of dark chocolate too. Loads of black chocolate cake and dried coffee cake character. Full and very powerful. Lots of ripe tannins. Goes on for minutes. Better in 2014...96." www.jamessuckling.com 1/15/11 "Silky and elegant, offering cherry, raspberry, currant and violet aromas and flavors. Detailed and firmly structured, with refined tannins. A Brunello of finesse and harmony. Best from 2012 through 2028...95." Collectibles - WS 8/31/11
(14,5% by vol.) fruity, spicy and toasted: hints of blueberries and sour black cherries are enriched by notes of green pepper, coffee and tobacco. Well balanced, warm and velvety with pronounced tannins. Very intense and persistent.
