*R* 2016 Ciacci Piccolomini "Pianrosso" Brunello di Montalcino (Tuscany, IT)

Varietal: Sangiovese

Region: Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy


From Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

98 points. The Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso is a single-vineyard expression that draws its fruit from an 11.7-hectare parcel with moderately thick galestro soils with ancient marine material. This special site, awash under the brilliant light of a big, open sky, does indeed deliver a more pronounced mineral signature, with wild berry, rose and rosemary essence. This is a beautiful wine, taut and silky, with elegant tannins that will endure ambitious bottle aging. Production is 37,000 bottles.”
