    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Pianrosso vineyard is at an altitude between 1,148 and 1,574 feet above sea level. This single vineyard, old vines bottling is what Ciacci's outstanding reputation was built upon. Aged for more than 36 months in 20 to 62 hectoliter Slavonian oak barrels, followed by a minimum of 8 months of bottle refinement. A truly great value for a single vineyard Brunello.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is a very rich Sangiovese on the nose with dried black cherries and strawberries. Lots of dark chocolate too. Loads of black chocolate cake and dried coffee cake character. Full and very powerful. Lots of ripe tannins. Goes on for minutes. Better in 2014.

    Silky and elegant, offering cherry, raspberry, currant and violet aromas and flavors. Detailed and firmly structured, with refined tannins. A Brunello of finesse and harmony.

    The Wine Advocate

    Vigna Pianrosso is a vineyard-designate Brunello that opens with warming notes of spice, cardamom, ginger and rhubarb. The wine delivers a very smooth and creamy texture in the mouth.
