James SucklingThe Brunello "Pianrosso" was named after the celebrated, eponymously named vineyard site. This single-vineyard bottling is what Ciacci's outstanding reputation was built upon. Aged for more than 36 months in 20-62 hl Slovenian oak barrels followed extended periods of bottle refinement.
Wine EnthusiastEnticing aromas of blue flower, ripe berry, pressed powder and Mediterranean herb float from the glass. The firm palate shows great intensity, delivering layers of black cherry, dark cooking spice and licorice alongside youthfully austere tannins. It's still young and tightly knit so give it time to unwind and develop complexity. Drink 2020-2030.
