"A harmonious style, whose graceful frame is enhanced by strawberry, cherry and a hint of tobacco. Intense and long, with plenty of energy on the finish." 91 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator Magazine

''The 2015 features floral and fruity aromas, with juicy cherries in the foreground. Their is a nice richness and complexity, with a just a hint of the sweet spices of cinnamon on the finish.'' Luca Gardini, Chi Magazine (Italy)
The 2015 Rosso di Montalcino is ruby red and shows notes of red berry fruits, enriched by slight floral and spicy hints. Warm, soft on the palate with great structure and round tannins.
Ciacci Piccolmini is one of the most sought-after producers in Montalcino. This ancient estate has 35 hectares of superior holdings in the prized Castelnuovo dell'Abate zone. This Rosso is made of 100% Sangiovese Grosso, with bright and rich red fruit, earth, dried citrus zest and gentle spices.
''Some have called Rosso di Montalcino baby Brunello merely because the designation is made from sangiovese and comes from the same general area as its older brother. Yet in 2015, the wines live up to the moniker. They show such beautiful ripe fruit yet wonderful freshness at the same time. They may be the best Rosso di Montalcinos I have ever tasted, and they sell for a fraction of the price of Brunellos from the same given producer. Try some out.'' James Suckling
