Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso 2012

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Vineyard: 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 Fermentation and refinement: In stainless steel and glass concrete vats, temperature-controlled via cooling plates and jackets. Ageing: Roughly 36 months in 20 - 62 hl Slavonian oak barrels, followed by over 8 months of bottle refinement. Colour: Ruby red verging on garnet. Organoleptic characteristics: The bouquet is intense, complex, fruit-forward and spicy with hints or 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 great potential for further cellar ageing. Service: Open an hour before pouring and serve at 18°C (64,4° F) in large crystal glasses. Bottles should be kept in a horizontal position, far from light sources and protected from both extremes and changes in temperature. Food pairings: Great companion of stewed and roasted meat and game (such as hare, pheasant and wild boar). Excellent with mature cheeses. Technical notes: Bottles are protected against counterfeiting by a hologram on the capsule. ** Only 12 in Stock **

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
