Wine Details

Ciacci Piccolomini Toscana Rosso IGT

This red blend is an ideal daily wine, a full-bodied Sangiovese softened by the addition of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah. Fruity and lightly herbal with perfumes of flowers leather and a dusty hint of earth and spice. This a wine ready to drink now, and also happens to be a great value.
