Buy Ciacci Piccolomini Rosso Montalcino
Wine Spectator 88 points - Ciacci?s 2011 Rosso di Montalcino is one of the darker wines of the year. Black cherries, flowers, spices and cloves all take shape in a powerful, broad Rosso that stands out for its sheer intensity. The ripeness of the year in this southernmost part of Montalcino comes through in spades. Not a lightweight, this serious Rosso is all about richness. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2019.

Producer
The Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona estate, whose origins date back to the 17th century, produces some of Italy’s most highly regarded wines. In 1985, estate manager Giuseppe Bianchini inherited the property from Countess Elda Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona, who had no heirs. Today, his children, Paolo and Lucia Bianchini, continue making excellent Brunellos in the tradition of their father, who died in 2004. The 85 acre estate in the prized Castelnuovo dell’Abate zone includes the famed Pianrosso site. The vineyards are located between Poggio d’Arna and the Orcia River on the southwest side of Montalcino at an altitude of 240 to 360 meters. Organic fertilizers are employed along with double pruning and green harvesting. The Bianchini’s own three cellars – the ancient Palzzo cellar, the main Molinello cellar and the Santo Stefano cellar, located in Montenero, which is used solely for production of their Montecucco DOC wine. The Ciacci wines all speak of flawless quality and exhibit Tuscan typicity crafted in a modern style.
