Brunello di Montalcino Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona 2015 (750ML)
95 points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate: "The Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona estate enjoys a beautiful and huge expanse of vineyards at the back of the Castelnuovo dell'Abate village, where the downward slope of the hamlet meets the Orcia River, which delineates the appellation border. The estate's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino offers lovely harmony and elegance. The wine's taste profile follows the soft contours and beautiful horizons that characterize this beautiful part of Tuscany. The mouthfeel is medium-weight but carefully balanced with just enough acidity to add brightness. It shows just enough backbone to guarantee staying power and longevity. That said, the tannins are carefully integrated into the delicate fiber of the wine. This is no doubt one of the most graceful Brunellos to emerge from the 2015 vintage. Some 74,500 bottles were released in January 2020." 01/20
98 points, James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com: "Extremely perfumed and decadent with dried flowers and spices and fresh mushrooms. Cherries,too. Full body. Solid core of fruit, yet ever so fine tannins. Goes on for minutes. Such beautifully crafted tannins. Drink after 2021." 10/19
94 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator:"Distinctly salty, this red features cherry, strawberry, juniper, thyme and tobacco flavors. Tightly wound and energetic, with fine balance and a lingering, resonant aftertaste. Complex and built to age. Best from 2023 through 2042." 04/20.
97 Points, Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast [Editor's Choice]"Enticing aromas of ripe wild berry, iris, camphor and sunbaked soil take shape in the glass. Full bodied and enveloping, the smooth, delicious palate doles out juicy Marasca cherry, raspberry jam, licorice and tobacco while firm velvety tannins provide support. It boasts concentration and structure but also balance, thanks to the fruit richness and freshness. Drink 2023-2030" 05/20
International Wine Reviews
97 Points, Raffaele Vecchione, International Wine Report: "The 2015 Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona Brunello di Montalcino is a monumental showing in this vintage. Displaying striking aromatics of rose petals, hibiscus flowers, lavender and dehydrated cherries. It is further enriched with citrus notes in the aftertaste. This Brunello is medium-to full-bodied, well-extracted and tailored tannins that lend to a soft and enveloping finish which gives immediate pleasure. This is top-class quality, and amongst the very best Montalcino has to offer." 03/20
