THE RECENT PICK

2015 Ciacci Piccolomini, Brunello di Montalcino "Pianroso"

100 Points From One Of The Top Crus In Montalcino!
Only 400 Cases Imported

Made In Only The Finest Vintages

The last release of Ciacci's "Pianrosso" Brunello was 2013, an excellent vintage but a vintage that pales in comparison to this blockbuster 2015 release.

Only 400 cases a year are imported from this single-vineyard cru.

Ciacci Piccolomini is one of the premier estates in Montalcino. Its Pianrosso single vineyard is the basis for its outstanding reputation.

"The 2015 vintage is a historical year for Brunello di Montalcino that nobody should miss. The wines show impressive precision of vivid fruit, fine tannins and freshness in acidity despite their ripeness and richness which makes them some of the most exciting in years.  James Suckling

A "Cellar Selection" By Wine Enthusiast

"Intense aromas of berry, iris, underbrush, botanical herb and camphor shape the enticing nose. Firmly structured, the taut, full-bodied palate offers juicy black cherry, raspberry, licorice, and tobacco set against tightly knit, fine-grained tannins."  Wine Enthusiast

We have featured a few select 2015 Brunellos in the past few weeks.  If you have missed any or would like to add to your collection, this is definitely one to own. 

Enjoy now and over the next 15 years.

Cheers!

Summary


JAMES SUCKLING

100 / 100

"Lots of ripe and rich fruit with a decadent undertone of meat and spice that turns to pure fruit and licorice. Medium to full body, refined tannins and a fresh and bright finish. All about harmony. Better after 2021."
