Product Details

Vinous (Antonio Galloni): “The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a great example of the Ciacci house style. Rich, layered and ample, the 2010 blossoms with notable depth and amplitude. This is a classic Brunello from Castelnuovo dell’Abate, where the wines are typically resonant and generous. Readers will find a gorgeous, highly expressive Brunello that will deliver considerable near and medium-term pleasure. Crushed flowers, tobacco and cherry pit add nuance on the soft, open finish. The 2010 spent two and a half years in barrel.” 93/100

Wine Advocate (Monica Larner): “The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino represents a return to the traditional values of Montalcino. The bouquet is buoyant and bright with lingering tones of smoke, ash, balsam herb, licorice and soy sauce. Those kinds of aromas make Brunello such a wonderful wine and thankfully you get them in abundance here. Dry mineral and brimstone also give the wine a sense of focus, sharpness and cleanliness that is very appealing. The close is long, fine and polished. I look forward to retasting this bottle five years from now.” 94+/100

International Wine Report: “Another wonderful showing in 2010 is the Brunello di Montalcino from Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona. This is pure, elegant and refined, bursting with fresh dark cherries and plums followed by spring floral, aged balsamic, wet stones with hints of red licorice. Full-bodied with excellent balance, supported by a gorgeous silky texture and a lovely inner sweetness from the ripe tannins, which carries through to the long, pretty finish. This is quite open, even at the early stage and looks as if it will be accessible immediately, however should also age nicely over the next decade.”
