Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello Di Montalcino 2010 375ml Product #29222 (In Stock)
Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello Di Montalcino 2010 375ml Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello Di Montalcino 2010 375ml

This old Montalcino estate, founded by Francesco Ciacci in 1877, has been a Brunello standard-bearer for decades now.  Giuseppe Bianchini (the estate manager who inherited the property when the last Ciacci died in 1985) and his children Paolo and Lucia are famed for producing elegant, aromatic, wines that still pack plenty of Brunello power and punch.  The family introduced this wine, made from the estate's younger vines, in 2003 and it's grown into one of the most highly-rated, best value, wines of the region.  It always drinks well very young (although an hour of air won't hurt), and is best enjoyed in the first 15 years from the vintage.

“Very perfumed with flower, truffle, light wet earth and cherry character. Full body and full integrated ripe tannins and caresses your palate. Very fine and pretty. Slight soya undertone. Succulent and enticing. You want to drink this. Better in 2016.”  James Suckling 94 points

"The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino represents a return to the traditional values of Montalcino. The bouquet is buoyant and bright with lingering tones of smoke, ash, balsam herb, licorice and soy sauce. Those kinds of aromas make Brunello such a wonderful wine and thankfully you get them in abundance here. Dry mineral and brimstone also give the wine a sense of focus, sharpness and cleanliness that is very appealing. The close is long, fine and polished. I look forward to retasting this bottle five years from now."Wine Advocate 94+ points

Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello Di Montalcino Pianrosso 2010 Product #29185 (In Stock)
Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello Di Montalcino Pianrosso 2010 Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello Di Montalcino Pianrosso 2010

Ciacci’s Pianrosso vineyard is one of Brunello’s landmarks, a site that layers on extra stuffing and depth to Ciacci’s elegant, graceful, style.  The family has farmed this 12 hectare vineyard of rocky marl soils organically for years and ages the fruit entirely in traditional large Slovenian oak casks.  You can certainly take a peek at it when it arrives, but Pianrosso is built to develop gracefully in cellar and both the 2001 and 2004 from my cellar are really just hitting their peak now.

“Aromas of lilac, dark berry and sandalwood follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and an intense and savory finish. Very intense and very long. Succulent. Amazing balance and depth to this red. It's so beautiful to taste now but it will be much better in five to ten years. A triumph.”  James Suckling 98 points

"Beautiful and delicate from the start, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna di Pianrosso impresses for its depth and balance. The wine sees one more year of oak cask aging compared to the base Brunello and you can definitely sense the extra spice on the nose. Those delicate balsam notes of root beer, ginger and rosemary oil are still prominently on display. Rich spice, leather and tar are followed by dark fruit, prune, blackberry and cassis. The finish is graceful and silky, but its length remains impressive. This is a terrific effort that promises a steady evolution ahead."Wine Advocate 97 points
