Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona Toscana Rosso
Ruby red in colour. On the palate the Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona Toscana Rosso is fruity, lightly herbal and enriched by hints of spices. This wine is ready for drinking, full bodied, and quite soft and well balanced.
The Sangiovese Grosso into this IGT comes from the youngest plots close to the vineyards dedicated to the production of Rosso di Montalcino DOC and
Brunello di Montalcino DOCG. Located in soil of medium grain with good levels of marl, dating from the Eocene period at an altitude that ranges from
240 to 360 metres above sea level.
This multifaceted wine is suited to day to day drinking, easily matched with all foods, full bodied thanks to the blend of the grapes used. Vinification takes place in stainless steel vats with temperature controlled through cooling jackets and refining occurs in concrete vats
Located in the south east of the Montalcino region close to the beautiful medieval village of Castelnuovo dell’Abate, the estate of Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona can trace its roots back to the 17th century. The Ciacci family owned the estate for over a hundred years until the death of Countess Elda Ciacci. As the Countess had no children she left the property to her long standing and well respected estate manager Giuseppe Bianchini. His hard work and dedication has been continued by his son and daughter, Paolo and Lucia, who have developed the property and wines to their current respected position.
They have a total holding of 220 hectares of the rolling Tuscan hills bordered by the Orcia River which helps moderate the temperature of this hot dry part of the region. 53 hectares are devoted to the wonderful Sangiovese Grosso grape which produce the Brunello di Montalcino together with small amounts of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The wines receive global acclaim thanks to the commitment to the terroir and traditional winemaking practices and rank Ciacci Piccolomini D’Aragona amongst the greatest producers of Brunello di Montalcino.
