Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona Pianrosso Brunello 2016
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
|Brand||Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona|
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.
Lots going on here with black plums, ripe cherries, cedar, smoke and cocoa on the nose. Ash, chocolate, crushed walnuts and some praline. Mushrooms. This has firm, ripe tannins and a full body. Flavorful and juicy finish. Very structured. Drink after 2025.
Aromas of red berry, camphor and tobacco meld with rose in this fragrant, full-bodied red. The smooth palate is concentrated yet elegant, featuring raspberry jam, cherry marinated in spirits, licorice and coffee bean alongside a backbone of firm, velvety tannins. Drink 2023–2031.
International Wine Report
"Wow, this expresses beauty and precision of execution in the notes of hibiscus, flowering geraniums, currant and pomegranate. The secondary aromas are tinged with lemon blossom and mandarin peel. Medium-full body, soft and integrated tannins of excellent quality and a juicy and centered finish. Better from 2021."
