For many years the wines of the famed region of Montalcino have been recognized as the top wines of Italy. This is still a very true statement today. The central town is perched on the top of the hill and the vineyards are patched together on the hillsides below. The Ciacci family’s history dates back to the 17th century, and their land holdings are some of the most historic in Tuscany. The legendary winemaking estate is located on the south side of the hill around the smaller village of Castelnuovo facing the Orcia Valley. Originally the estate was owned by the church and Francesco Ciacci purchased the property in 1877.
This is an entry-level Super Tuscan from Ciacci Piccolomini. True to the style, this Rosso is made primarily with Sangiovese, and blended with the international varieties of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah. This wine is fermented in stainless steel and aged in cement vats. It is meant to be drunk immediately and often.
