Ciacci Piccolomini IGT Toscana Rosso 2007
88 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): In recent years, Ciacci's Toscana Rosso has established itself as one of the finest values in Tuscany, and the 2007 is no exception. Essentially a second selection of barrels from the Ateo and Fabius, the 2007 Toscana Rosso flows with generous, plump fruit and a juicy, irresistible personality. Readers will have a hard time finding a better value in Tuscan wine. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2012. (Apr 2010)
whoops I tasted the brunello.
This is the first Sangiovese I have tried. The soft tannins really appeal to me. I also appreciate the versatility of the variety in terms of food pairings. I will be investigating this variety much closer. I purchased this bottle at a location that is not a preferred wine source. The fact that my wife really enjoyed this wine is a plus.
External Reviews for Ciacci Piccolomini IGT Toscana Rosso
The entry-level 2006 Toscana Rosso is fresh, vinous red perfect for casual drinking over the next few years. I can't think of too many wines that deliver this much sheer pleasure for the money.
The 2004 Montecucco Sangiovese, a blend of predominantly Sangiovese with small amounts of Merlot and Syrah from the Montecucco district in Maremma, is richer, and weightier than the Rosso di Montalcino, expressing the warmth of its microclimate as well as a subtle use of barrique in its more intense color, sweet dark fruit, toasted oak and licorice flavors. It offers much length on the palate and plenty of style. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2010.
