Drink now or cellar for up to 15 years. No need to decant before serving.

This elegant Brunello comes from an estate that dates back to the 17th century and is set around a stunning palazzo built by the Bishop of Montalcino. In 1985 the then owner Elda Ciacci gave the property to Giuseppe Bianchini who had been farming the estate for many years since she had no children of her own. In 2004 Giuseppe passed away and left the property to his son and daughter, Paolo and Lucia.

Today these siblings have been joined in the business by Paolo’s son and daughter who are leading this young family legacy into a new generation. The family focuses on crafting delicious and approachable Brunello wines which are capable of significant additional ageing in the cellar.

This is their classic Brunello di Montalcino made from grapes grown on rolling Tuscan hillsides next to the Orcia riiver. The presence of the water helps to moderate the hot summers, locking in plenty of freshness and aromatics into the grapes. The nose is dominated by classic red cherry notes as well as delicate hints of spice and toast from the oak ageing in large Slavonian casks.
