Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso Premier 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"Complex aromas of red fruits, flowers and fresh mushrooms follow through to a full body, with ultra-fine tannins and intense fruit and bright acidity. Goes on for a long, long time. So juicy and fruity. Hints of bitter lemon rind. Give this two or three years more of bottle age...96." www.jamessuckling.com 1/12 "Dark bright red. Black cherry, dark raspberry, licorice and graphite on the nose. Rich, vinous and deep, with dark cherry fruit complicated and lifted by flowers and licorice. Chewy and large-scaled but smooth and not heavy. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and lingering notes of licorice, dark chocolate, licorice and smoky minerality. In a distinctly dark style....91" IWC 07/12

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

Not as full bodied as I would have expected. Slightly acidic aftertaste

A mix of cherry, strawberry, earth, iron and dried beef aromas and flavors make this complex in a lighter style. Balanced between the fruit, moderate acidity and tannins. Very elegant. Best from 2014 through 2028.

The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso is fresher, more floral and more delineated than the straight Brunello bottling. There is plenty of Ciacci depth and muscle in the glass. Layers of dark red fruit, crushed flowers, licorice and spices wrap around the intense, deep finish. This is a huge wine with tons of 2007 Castelnuovo character, but also with enough freshness to balance out the wine’s more extroverted leanings. The 2007 is a big improvement over the 2006, which remains an underachiever relative to Ciacci’s historical track record of excellence. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2027.
