100 Points from James Suckling

Lots of ripe and rich fruit with a decadent undertone of meat and spice that turns to pure fruit and licorice. Medium to full body, refined tannins and a fresh and bright finish. All about harmony.

 

98 Points from Wine Enthusiast

Intense aromas of berry, iris, underbrush, botanical herb and camphor shape the enticing nose. Firmly structured, the taut, full-bodied palate offers juicy black cherry, raspberry, licorice and tobacco set against tightly knit, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2025–2035.

 

96 Points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 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.

 

94 Points from Wine Spectator

Black cherry, blackberry and blueberry flavors mark this saturated red. Beefy tannins offer support and all the components are in the right place. Stays fresh and long on the finish, with lingering accents of fruit, mineral and tobacco. Best from 2023 through 2043.

 

Winemaker Notes

The bouquet on the 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso is intense, complex, & fruit-forward. spicy with hints or ripe red berry fruits enriched by various spicy notes. Ruby red verging on garnet. Warm, soft and harmonic on the palate. Great balance among pronounced tannins, acidity and savory.

This wine is a great companion to stewed and roasted meat and game or mature cheeses.
