CIACCI PICCOLOMINI 2012 CIACCI ATEO "The 2012 Ateo, Ciacci's Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend, captures the essence of this warm, radiant vintage in its exuberant fruit and juicy personality. Black cherry, plum, spice and licorice flesh out in a succulent wine to drink now and over the next decade or so. The blend is 50/50, but it is the Merlot that really seems to jump from the glass today." Antonio Galloni Vinous Media 92 points Drink 2015-25
Producer
The Ciacci Piccolomini dAragona estate, whose origins date back to the 17th century, produces some of Italys most highly regarded wines. In 1985, estate manager Giuseppe Bianchini inherited the property from Countess Elda Ciacci Piccolomini dAragona, who had no heirs. Today, his children, Paolo and Lucia Bianchini, continue making excellent Brunellos in the tradition of their father, who died in 2004. The 85 acre estate in the prized Castelnuovo dellAbate zone includes the famed Pianrosso site. The vineyards are located between Poggio dArna and the Orcia River on the southwest side of Montalcino at an altitude of 787 to 1,181 feet. Organic fertilizers are employed along with double pruning and green harvesting. The Bianchinis own three cellars the ancient Palazzo cellar, the main Molinello cellar and the Santo Stefano cellar, located in Montenero, which is used solely for production of their Montecucco DOC wine. The Ciacci wines all speak of flawless quality and exhibit Tuscan typicity crafted in a modern style.
