96 points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's The 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. Some 37,000 bottles were released in January 2020." 01/20
93 Points, Ian D'Agata, Vinous: "Deep red. Perfumed aromas and flavors of red and black cherry, cinnamon, mocha, ginger and blood orange. Smooth and multifaceted, with strong licorice notes emerging on the long suave close." 4/20
100 points, James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com: "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. Better after 2021." 10/19
94 Points, Bruce Sanderson, 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." 04/20.
International Wine Reviews
99 Points, Raffaele Vecchione, International Wine Report: "The 2015 'Pianrosso' Brunello from Ciacci Piccolomini is simply fabulous. Precise nose and an exuberant character, this wine shows incredible purity with hints of black plums, cassis, myrtle leaf, ginseng root, bergamot and further enhanced by gorgeous hints of dried rose petals. On the palate this possess a gorgeous full body with silky tannins and a seamless character that caresses the palate as it comes to an end with a lively finish of excellent quality. A masterpiece produced in Montalcino in an extraordinary vintage. While this is already utterly fascinating in its youth, it should become even more captivating as it evolves over the next few years and beyond. The 2015 'Pianrosso' is nothing short of extraordinary and pushes the limits of perfection." 03/20
