Drink now or cellar for up to 20 years. Decant 1 hour before serving.

The Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona estate is set in the southeastern corner of Montalcino close to the Orcia river which helps to moderate temperatures during the hot summers. The palazzo on the property was built by the Bishop of Montalcino in the 17th century. The modern story of the estate begins in 1985 when Countess Elda Ciacci gave it to her estate manager. Today the property is looked after by his two children and two grandchildren who are creating their own family legacy here.

This single vineyard Brunello comes from a 11.7 hectare plot which sits at up to 360 metres of altitude and features top quality marl soils. The terroir here helps to craft elegant yet structured wines with plenty of balancing acidity and aromatics. Once in the winery the grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks and glass-lined vats before being aged for 36 months in large Slavonian oak casks.

As soon as you pour out a glass of this charming Brunello you’ll notice the enticing notes of ripe cherries, leather, cedar and cinnamon from the lengthy time in oak. On the palate there is plenty of power and firm tannins balanced by acidity which gives this wine great ageing potential in the cellar. Open alongside seasonal game like venison or wild boar or keep for a decade or more in the cellar.
