Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona is a wine that is produced in the Medieval town of Montalcino in Tuscany, Italy. The estate with its magnificent palazzo was originally built in the 16th century. 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. Giuseppe Bianchini inherited the estate in 1985, where he upheld traditions while updating techniques and operations. His children Paolo and Lucia now oversee production. These highly regarded wines are produced with organic and sustainable cultivation, preserving the truest expressions of the grapes.  Read less

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 1999 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna di Pianrosso, one of the best to date, announces its importance with warm and potent aromas of plums and red currants, chocolate and tar. The rich and concentrated flavors, deep, supple, and very long, have the dimension, class, and definition that put the Sangiovese of Montalcino in a category of its own. Drink: 2005-2020.

Silky and elegant, offering cherry, raspberry, currant and violet aromas and flavors. Detailed and firmly structured, with refined tannins and a lingering aftertaste of red fruits. A Brunello of finesse and harmony. Best from 2012 through 2028.

This beautiful wine from the southeastern hills of Castelnuovo dell'Abate takes the '99 vintage in a lighter direction than most of its siblings, building spice out of its tannin and pungent red fruit. The flavors are classical, with a red raspberry rasp and an earthen grip that spreads the tannic spice through a long finish. The lightness makes it accessible now, while the dynamic red fruit and rose scents argue for drinking it ten years from the vintage.

Vigna Pianrosso is a vineyard-designate Brunello that opens with warming notes of spice, cardamom, ginger and rhubarb. The wine delivers a very smooth and creamy texture in the mouth.

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 mdash; each wine is a tribute to the gracious Countess. Highly regarded palates consistently rank the Ciacci Piccolomini wines in the top 10th percentile mdash; 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 1998 Brunello di Montalcino exhibits a soft, supple, elegant, sweet nose of underbrush, licorice, jammy currants and cherries, spice box, and tobacco. Medium-bodied and luscious, this sexy, kinky Brunello will drink well for 5ndash;10 years.
