Wine Details

Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

Brunello di Montalcino is a classic expression of the Sangiovese Grosso grape from estate vineyards in the prestigious Val D’Orcia. This is an intensely perfumed and rich wine with dried flowers, red berry fruits and notes of spice and fresh mushrooms. Full-bodied, yet warm and soft, with a well-balanced palate, fine tannins and incredible length.

Recent press reviews


Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2018

Gardini Notes (96)- "The ‘basis’ of Ciacci Piccolomini house, another excellence of this winery. Great tension to the nose, red currant, nuances of laurel and eucalyptus. Juiciness and tension to the palate, brackish tannins, fruity-balsamic return on the closure."


Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2018

James Suckling (95)- "Roasted herbs, walnuts, olives, dried cherries and balsamic on the nose with a touch of leather and sage. It’s full-bodied with firm, finely-knit tannins. Creamy and so well integrated with depth and class. Try after 2024."


Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2018

Wine Advocate (94)- "The 2018 Brunello di Montalcino turns out beautiful results if you choose to drink the wine now, or if you opt to age it a little longer. It offers immediate intensity and complexity with a prelude of red and purple berry fruits that follow to tarry spice, campfire ash, licorice and rusty nail. Those savoy tones are well measured against the wine's elegant, mid-weight finish. And the tannins are integrated seamlessly. The winemaking team has worked well in a challenging vintage."
