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

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.

    Nice and soft. Cherry flavors and medium dry. Not to acidic.

    The entry-level 2006 Toscana Rosso is fresh, vinous red perfect for casual drinking over the next few years. I canrsquo;t think of too many wines that deliver this much sheer pleasure for the money.

    The 2008 Toscana Rosso Ciacci Piccolomini drsquo;Aragona is a pleasant, juicy wine best enjoyed in its youth. The 2008 is a good effort, but not quite the screaming deal it can be in the very best years. Teh Toscana Rosso is an unoaked blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Anticipated maturity: 2011ndash;2014.

    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: 2006ndash;2010.

    A cool, crisp expression of Sangiovese that exhibits the bright berried fruit on the palate with classic spicy, floral aromatics and a nuance of coffee that serves as a great introduction to the fine Sangiovese of Brunello.
