Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona Brunello di Montalcino 2011, 750ml
This legendary estate was put on the map for their ultra-traditional wine-making style and their notable single-vineyard bottling, the 'Pianrosso'. However, after acquiring new vineyards around the millennium they began producing this classic bottling that is a little more accessible. The Sangiovese here showcases dark cherry fruit, tobacco and earth with sound tannin and body form 2.5 years aging in large oak botte. Even in its youth this wine opens nicely and has great complexity.
