In 1985, with a complete absence of direct successors, the winery was inherited by Giuseppe Bianchini. Giuseppe has worked at the winery for many years, and was considered to be like a son to the existing family. Understanding well the traditions of the winery, Giuseppe maintained the commitment to quality and history. He passed away in 2004, leaving his two children Paolo and Lucia to carry on the traditions at Ciacci Piccolomini.

It is a beautiful expression of Sangiovese, with bright red fruit and balsamic notes, and an excellent balance of silky smooth tannins and acid. This is as close as you can get to Brunello quality while maintaining the Rosso di Montalcino DOC appellation.
