Brunello di Montalcini - Pianrosso by Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona



This wine is produced only in the best vintages from a careful selection of grapes from the Pianrosso vineyard and it has always been our most representative wine. From this single vineyard we also select the grapes for our Brunello Riserva.



Vineyard

The Pianrosso vineyard covers 11,69 hectares (29,22 acres). The soil is medium grain with good levels of marl, dating from the Eocene period. The altitude of this large vineyard varies from 240 to 360 metres above sea level.



Organoleptic characteristics

The bouquet is intense, complex, fruit-forward and spicy with hints or ripe red berry fruits enriched by various spicy notes. Warm, soft and harmonic on the palate. Great balance among pronounced tannins, acidity and savouriness. This elegant wine has great potential for further cellar ageing.

Family

After the Bishop’s death, the Palace and the surrounding estate were auctioned according to the Italian law regarding ecclesiastic properties and on September 16, 1868, they were purchased by the countess Eva Bernini Cerretani. On December 31, 1877, the countess Cerretani sold the entire estate to the Ciacci family from Castelnuovo dell’Abate. After the marriage between the count Alberto Piccolomini d’Aragona, a direct discendent of Enea Silvio Piccolomini (Pope Pius II) and Elda Ciacci, the Bishop’s Palace became the Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona Palace.



In 1985 the countess Elda Ciacci bequeathed the entire property to Giuseppe Bianchini, farmer of the estate since a lot of years, applying a completely brand new and forefront philosophy production for that period, increasing quantity, quality of wines and opening the export worldwide. Giuseppe, unfortunately passed away in February 2004, left the business to his son and daughter, Paolo and Lucia.



Today: Co-owner Paolo with his sister Lucia, wine producer and winemaker, he continues to increase with passion both job and philosophy transmitted directly from his father Giuseppe. Founder of "ASD BRUNELLO BIKE", an amateur cycling club to support charity. Lucia is at the head of the administration&accounting office with great determination. Passionate travel and animal lover.



Estate

The entire estate, extending over 220 hectares of which 55.5 are in vines and 40 in olive groves, has all the typical characteristics of the Tuscan countryside adorned with rolling hills, pastures and woods with unforgettable colours. 



Set between Arna hill and the Orcia River to the south-east, it offers a unique panorama with the beautiful contour of Mount Amiata in the background. Wild animals, scents of flowers and plants and the typical farmhouses dotted around, create a peaceful and calm atmosphere in this area. 



Cellars

Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona estate has two wine cellars: the historical wine cellar, dedicated to the long ageing of the most prestigious wines located in the basement of the 17th century Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona Palace;the new wine cellar, near the village of Castelnuovo dell’Abate, now the estate headquarters with fermentation, aging, refinement and storage facilities.



Palazzo Piccolomini historical cellar

The Palazzo was erected in the XVII century by the Montalcino Bishop Fabivs de' Vecchis, Abbot of S. Antimo Abbey, Conte Palatino and Imperial Advisor. In 1985, Giuseppe Bianchini and his family decide to take up residence at the Palace that become the headquarters of the Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona estate. With determination and pride, it maintains the traditions and culture that are part and parcel of the property.
The underground cellar in the Palazzo is the historical memory of the winery, able to evoke great suggestion to our visitors since always, keeps our oldest vintages, still possible to visit upon reservation.



Molinello cellar

The Molinello is a completely underground building, developped to benefit from an optimal and natural temperature. It exceeds 2500 square metres. It was conceived and designed by Giuseppe Bianchini and erected at the end of the 90s, becoming now the estate headquarters, where winemaking processes take place. The cellar is provided with the best oenological equipments that allow a perfect alliance between modernity and tradition. 



The first fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats with temperature-controlled. Then, in a suggestive ageing cellar, heart of the winery, many slavionan oak barrels, from 7,5 to 75 Hl, keep our wines Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino for many years, giving elegance and typical flavors. After the ageing process in oak, a technological bottling and labelling line ends the entire process.
