Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona Brunello di Montalcino 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

This product is protected against counterfeiting by an hologram on the capsule and by the Certilogo system, which allows you to check its authenticity and to obtain valuable information This wine is the result of a careful selection of grapes from the Pianrosso vineyard and it has always been our most representative wine. From this single vineyard we also select the grapes for our Brunello Riserva. Vineyards: The Pianrosso vineyard covers 11,69 hectares (29,22 acres). The soil is medium grain with good levels of marl, dating from the Eocene period. The altitude of this large vineyard varies from 240 to 360 metres above sea level. Grape varietal: 100% Sangiovese Grosso Fermentation and refinement: in stainless steel and glass concrete vats with temperature controlled through cooling plates and jackets Ageing: 36 months in 20-62 hl Slavonian oak barrels, followed by a minimum of 8 month period of bottle ageing. Colour: ruby red verging towards garnet Organoleptic characteristics: (14,5 % vol.) The bouquet is intense, complex, fruit-forward and spicy with hints of ripe red berry fruits enriched by various spicy notes. Warm, soft and harmonic on the palate. Great balance among pronounced tannins, acidity and savouriness. This elegant wine has good potential for further cellar ageing. Service: open an hour before pouring and serve at 18°C (64,4° F) in large crystal wine glasses. Bottles should be kept in a horizontal position, far from light sources and protected from both extremes and changes in temperature. Food pairings: ideal with main courses of roasted and stewed meat, game and mature cheese.

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
