2016 Ciacci Piccolomini Toscana Rosso IGT
Just incredible value for what is in all essence a Super Tuscan. Top Sangiovese from young vines near those that this iconic producer use to make their world-renowned Brunello di Montalcino, combined with Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona’s Toscana Rosso is an everyday luxury, brimming with summery red fruit, dried herbs and a pinch of spice. A weekday go-to par excellence.
Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona have earned a permanent place in Brunello di Montalcino’s pantheon of greats. Critically acclaimed, organically farmed and state of the art, they are one of Italy’s most sought-after wine producers and their history is a truly incredible one. Although the property can trace its heritage back to the 17th Century, it’s the more recent bit that interests us. The estate came to be owned by the Ciacci family and Elda Ciacci married a count called Alberto Piccolomini d’Aragona, a descendant of one of the Popes. When she died in 1985, she left behind no heirs. To everybody’s surprise, she gifted the entire 220-hectare property to Giuseppe Bianchini – the farmer who had dedicated his life to managing its vines, olive groves, historic cellar and rolling Tuscan hills. It remains in his family – currently presided over by Paolo and Lucia – to this very day.
