Ciacci / 2013 Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

COUNTRY/REGION: Italy/Tuscany.

GRAPES: 100% Sangiovese.

ABV: 14%

DETAILS OF PRODUCTION: Located in the south east of the Montalcino region close to the beautiful medieval village of Castelnuovo dell’Abate, the estate of Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona can trace its roots back to the 17th century. They have a total holding of 220 hectares of the rolling Tuscan hills bordered by the Orcia River which helps moderate the temperature of this hot dry part of the region.

The altitude of the vineyard varies from 240 to 360 meters above sea level. Fermentation occurs in temperature-controlled stainless steel and glass concrete vats. Ageing takes place in 7.5-20 Hl Slavonian oak barrels.

TASTING NOTES: Ruby red in colour verging on garnet. The bouquet is intense, fruit-forward, spicy and floral with hints of red berry fruits enriched by delicate spicy notes. Warm, soft and very well balanced on the palate; well structured with soft tannins and long aftertaste.

DELIVERY: All our wines are stored in our importers bonded warehouse’s, which have the optimum environment for fine wine storage, by carefully regulating temperature, humidity and other microclimatic factors.
