Wine Details

Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso DOCG

The Pianrosso has always been the Estate’s most representative wine, a Cru Brunello crafted from the finest Sangiovese grapes grown in the vineyard of the same name, in the heart of the Val d’Orcia. An intense and complex, fruit-forward bouquet reveals ripe red berry fruits and a variety of spicy notes. Warm, soft and harmonious on the palate, pronounced tannins, acidity and a savory note bring balance to the wine. An elegant wine with great potential for additional aging in the cellar.

Recent press reviews


Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso DOCG 2017

James Suckling (94)- "This is a beautifully crafted and polished Brunello for this vintage, with full body and creamy, lightly chewy tannins. Dark berries, walnuts and cedar with dried-flower undertones. Needs time to soften, but very pretty."


Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso DOCG 2016

Wine Enthusiast (98)- "Aromas of red berry, camphor and tobacco meld with rose in this fragrant, full-bodied red. The smooth palate is concentrated yet elegant, featuring raspberry jam, cherry marinated in spirits, licorice and coffee bean alongside a backbone of firm, velvety tannins."


Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso DOCG 2016

Wine Advocate (98)- "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."
