Sangiovese. A vintage to drink early.
The Ciacci Piccolomini dAragona estate, whose origins date back to the 17th century, produces some of Italys most highly regarded wines. Wine Advocate 92 points - Like the other wines I tasted from Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona this year, I am surprised by the soft ripeness achieved in the 2014 Brunello di Montalcino. The wine offers enough crisp acidity and tannic firmness to hold it tightly together at this young stage in its lifespan. James Suckling 92 points - There’s a handy array of quite ripe red-berry and cherry aromas here that lead to a palate that has attractive red cherries with soft, earthy nuances and fine, chalky tannins. Drink now.
