'Pianrosso' Brunello di Montalcino is the single-vineyard bottling for which Ciacci Piccolomini has built its outstanding reputation. The Pianrosso vineyard covers 11 hectares (about 27 acres) which are authorized for the production of Brunello D.O.C.G. The land is medium grain with good levels of marl, dating from the Eocene period. The altitude of this vineyard varies from 240 to 360 metres above sea level. Aged for 36 months in large Slavonian oak barrels, followed by a minimum of eight months in bottle before release, Ciacci Piccolomini's Pianrosso typically has a complex nose with a fruit forward palate and mouth filling power. This wine will pair well with roasted red meats, rich pasta courses and aged Italian cheeses.

Wine AdvocateThe Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso is distinguished by a unique aromatic profile that brings out mineral notes of crushed limestone or chalk. This adds a greater sense of focus and delineation that not only characterizes the bouquet but also applies to the way the wine hits the palate in a fuller and more determined way (compared to the slightly softer classic Brunello). Instead, this single-vineyard Brunello shows an upright and direct approach with soft salinity on the close followed by forest fruit, spice and medicinal herb. The mouthfeel makes a big impact thanks to its streamlined and polished texture. Some 37,000 bottles were released in January 2020.
