  • About this winery

    Tenuta Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona is a spectacular estate in one of the most beautiful and unspoiled regions of Italy. It is located in the hills south of the ancient town of Montalcino, above the River Orcia and not far from the legendary medieval Abbey of S. Antimo. It is a classic Tuscan farm: a very large property of 425 acres, devoted to vineyards, olive groves, cereal crops, pasture, and woodland. The beautiful 17th century Palazzo was built by the Abbot of S. Antimo. For centuries it...

  • Tasting notes

    Intense and complex aromas of red berries and spice. The palate is warm and full-bodied with pronounced (yet soft) tannins and a long, lingering finish.

  • Viticultural notes

    The “Pianrosso”parcel covers 11.69 hectares. The soil is medium grain with good levels of marl, dating from the Eocene period. The altitude of this vineyard varies from 240 to 360 metres above sea level.

  • Winemaking notes

    Grapes were fermented in stainless steel and concrete vats. The wine was then aged over 3 years in Slovenian oak barrels and bottle-aged for an additional 12 months.

    June 2019

    Wild-berry, fragrant purple-flower and crushed aromatic herb aromas mingle with whiffs of tilled earth and new leather on this dazzling red. The stunning, savory palate boasts remarkable finesse combined with an age-worthy structure, offering succulent black cherry, raspberry compote, licorice and tobacco alongside taut, refined tannins. It's impeccably balanced, with bright acidity. It's already tempting, but hold for even more complexity.

    Although this wine is not labeled as a riserva, it is released six years after the harvest as if it were one. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso (with 20,000 bottles produced) opens to balanced fragrances that mix fruity elements with spice, crushed stone and smoke. This wine is linear and direct with firm tannic support at the back. Give it another few years to flesh out further with additional bottle aging.

    A wealth of coffee and spice aromas with ripe fruit. Full body and round tannins. Delicious and rich. Flavorful finish. Opulent style.
