- Ciacci Piccolomini Rosso Di Montalcino 2011 Product #27884 (In Stock)
Another outstanding, delicious, vintage for Ciacci's benchmark Rosso, missing out on the 90+ point score only because it's built to drink now,not age.
"Dark ruby; one of the deepest-colored 2011 Rosso di Montalcino wines. Sweet spices (cinnamon, nutmeg) complement candied red cherry and raspberry syrup on the rich nose. Then big, ripe and rich on the palate, with flavors of dark cherry macerated in alcohol, vanilla, oak and minerals lingering impressively. Finishes with vibrant acidith, smooth tannins, a trace of alcoholic heat and more than a hint of residual sugar. This is a superripe style of Rosso di Montalcino but I'm betting its that creamy sweetness and perfumed personality are going to be hard to resist."International Wine Cellar 89 points
