The Ciacci Piccolomini estate is in the southeastern reaches of Montalcino, near Castelnuovo dell’Abate. It was originally under ecclesiastical ownership but after passing through the hands of two noble families since 1868, the estate was bequeathed to Giuseppe Bianchini, a long-time farmer at the property, in 1985. It's now in the hands of Giuseppe's children, Paolo and Lucia.
" Like the other wines I tasted from Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona this year, I am surprised by the soft ripeness achieved in the 2014 Brunello di Montalcino. This was a cool and soggy vintage so those dark and sweet fruit flavors are counterintuitive. However, they elevate the wine to a higher intensity threshold and a more profound flavor profile. The wine offers enough crisp acidity and tannic firmness to hold it tightly together at this young stage of it's lifespan." - Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 93/100 Pts
