CIACCI PICCOLOMINI 2011 CIACCI ATEO "The 2010 Ateo, a Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon blend, is striking in this great vintage. Firm tannins support expressive dark fruit, wild flowers, mint, sage and blackberries. Although a wine more of region than variety, the 2010 impresses for its vibrant, structured personality and impeccable class. A big, full-throttle finish rounds things out in style. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2022." Antonio Galloni Wine Advocate 91 points (2010 vintage)

Producer
The Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona estate, whose origins date back to the 17th century, produces some of Italy’s most highly regarded wines. In 1985, estate manager Giuseppe Bianchini inherited the property from Countess Elda Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona, 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 dell’Abate zone includes the famed Pianrosso site. The vineyards are located between Poggio d’Arna and the Orcia River on the southwest side of Montalcino at an altitude of 240 to 360 meters. Organic fertilizers are employed along with double pruning and green harvesting. The Bianchini’s own three cellars – the ancient Palzzo 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.
