This beautiful and traditional red balances cherry and plum fruit, tobacco and leather accents, with firm and pliable tannins. As a result, this is vibrant and long, with earth and iron elements emerging on the aftertaste. This is an incredible wine from one of the oldest estates in Montalcino.

The Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso is a single-vineyard expression that draws its fruit from an 11.7-hectare parcel with moderately thick galestro soils with ancient marine material. This special site, awash under the brilliant light of a big, open sky, does indeed deliver a more pronounced mineral signature, with wild berry, rose and rosemary essence. This is a beautiful wine, taut and silky, with elegant tannins that will endure ambitious bottle aging. Production is 37,000 bottles.
