Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello di Montalcino 2013

Member Review by Bob Fyke:

Fine, black cherry, and black berry fruit, with elegant dried floral notes are the focus on the nose, along with burnt orange, iron, and a subtle richness. The palate has a fine grain, and elegant weight, with flavors of black cherry skins, anise, and some dried herbs. A bit awkward at this young age, with plenty of upside. 90Pts

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

Tuscany, ItalyWine Spectator 96 points, Wine Advocate 94 points!Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello di Montalcino is a beautiful red wine gem from the much heralded 2013 Brunello vintage, scoring 94 points from Wine Advocate! "This wine initially comes off as more somber, brooding and dark in personalty. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino takes a few moments in the glass before its starts to relax and grow in volume and context. Before long, opulent tones of black fruit, spice and pipe tobacco. The wine is elegantly tempered and finessed on the close. Some 68,000 bottles were produced. Drink 2020-2035"-Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, 94 points!Considered the king of Tuscan wines and one of the most renowned and long-lived red wines of Italy, Brunello is produced from a specific strain of Sangiovese (Sangiovese Grosso) grown in the unique microclimate surrounding the Tuscan town of Montalcino. Ciacci Piccolomini is one of the most sought-after producers in all of Italy. This ancient estate has 35 hectares of superior holdings in the prized Castelnuovo dell'Abate zone, including the 'Pianrosso' vineyard (meaning 'red field,' a reference to the iron rich soils) and the 'Fonte' vineyard, which produces grapes for the Rosso di Montalcino. Practicing organic."Exuding cherry, strawberry, floral and tobacco aromas and flavors, this effusive, fruity style is bright and elegant, with terrific harmony and a long, mouthwatering finish that leaves a mineral impression. Very compelling. Best from 2020 through 2036. 3,500 cases made."-BS, Wine Spectator 96 points, Highly RecommendedEnjoy Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello di Montalcino with osso bucco, lasagna, eggplant Parmesan, and cheeses.

A solid red, with silky tannins and mineral, berry and lightly toasted oak. Full and rich. Lovely now, but better in 2012. James Suckling. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2005 Ciacci Piccolomini d Aragona Brunello di Montalcino 750ml

The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino is wonderfully plump and juicy in its expressive red fruit. Floral notes are woven throughout, giving the wine its sense of lift and proportion. Though not as explosive as the 2004, the 2005 Brunello di Montalcino offe... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

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; structured with soft tannins and long aftertaste

This is a new basic Brunello from the Ciacci Piccolomini estate and is a fabulous addition to their exceptional line-up. In 03, new vineyards came into production at the Ciacci estate, making it possible for them to produce this great-value Brunello di Montalcino as a compliment to their legendary single-vineyard bottling from the famed Pianrosso vineyard.
