Winemaker's Notes:

Ciacci Piccolomini Rosso di Montalcino is fruit-forward, spicy and floral. Red berry fruits notes are enriched by slight floral and spicy hints. Warm, soft on the palate with great structure and round tannins.

An excellent wine suited to all courses, particularly vegetables and cereals soups, salami, cheese and first and second courses featuring red meat.

About Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona:

In 1985, Giuseppe Bianchini began his quest for quality. Moments after the passing of Countess Piccolomini, Giuseppe learned that he, the sole employee who passionately cared about her vines, inherited the vast Piccolomini wine estate. Evidence of his appreciation and commitment to the Piccolomini legend can be found in the glass – each wine is a tribute to the gracious Countess. Highly regarded palates consistently rank the Ciacci Piccolomini wines in the top 10th percentile – with good reason. Giuseppe believes his strict adherence to sustainable growing practices has significantly contributed to the vibrancy of fruit and the depth of complexity in his wines over the years. Without doubt, these wines speak of flawless quality and exhibit Tuscan typicity crafted in a modern style.
