From one of the finest names in all of Montalcino, we have the superb 2007 Brunellos from Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona.
Ciacci Piccolomini have long been not only one of my favourite producers in Italy, but one of my favourites worldwide. They seamlessly bridge the gap between traditional winemaking and historic vineyards with the best that modern viticulture has to offer.
Don’t just take my word for it though, James Suckling has just released his verdict on the ‘07s and they make for some great reading:
Brunello di Montalcino (Annata), Ciacci Piccolomini 2007 - £120.00 per case (6x75cl) in bond.
“Lots of fresh mushroom, with dark fruits on the nose. Full body, with silky tannins and a juicy finish. Balanced and attractive. Slightly chewy now. Better in 2015.”
92 Points - James Suckling.
Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso, Ciacci Piccolomini 2007 - £160.00 per case (6x75cl) In Bond. £165.00 (3x150cl) in bond. £65.00 (1x150cl in single Wooden Box) in bond.
“Complex aromas of red fruits, flowers and fresh mushrooms follow through to a full body, with ultra-fine tannins and intense fruit and bright acidity. Goes on for a long, long time. So juicy and fruity. Hints of bitter lemon rind. Give this two or three years more of bottle age.”
96 Points - James Suckling.
We also have a small allocation of the Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso Riserva (Santa Caterina) 2006 available. This is yet to be scored as this is the very first release of the wine, but James Suckling scored the straight Pianrosso 96 points for their 2006, so the Riserva is bound to be another world beater.
Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso Riserva (Santa Caterina), Ciacci Piccolomini 2006 - £250.00 per case (6x75cl) in bond or £125.00 (1x150cl in individual, numbered wooden collector’s boxes) in bond.
