Tasting Notes For Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona Brunello di Montalcino 2018

*** DAMAGED LABEL ***

Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona Brunello di Montalcino 2018 is a red wine that showcases the true essence of the Montalcino region in Tuscany, Italy. This wine is made from 100% Sangiovese grapes, also known as the Brunello grape, which are hand-harvested from the estate's oldest and finest vineyards. The wine undergoes an extensive aging process in large oak barrels for 36 months, followed by a further refinement in the bottle for 12 months, resulting in a full-bodied and complex wine with a deep ruby color.

On the nose, this Brunello di Montalcino exhibits intense aromas of ripe cherry, blackberry, and plum, alongside notes of tobacco, leather, and spice. On the palate, the wine is rich and elegant, with firm tannins and a long, persistent finish. The wine pairs perfectly with red meat dishes, game, and aged cheeses.

Critic Ratings

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Review - Rated 94:

The 2018 Brunello di Montalcino turns out beautiful results if you choose to drink the wine now, or if you opt to age it a little longer. It offers immediate intensity and complexity with a prelude of red and purple berry fruits that follow to tarry spice, campfire ash, licorice and rusty nail. Those savoy tones are well measured against the wine's elegant, mid-weight finish. And the tannins are integrated seamlessly. The winemaking team has worked well in a challenging vintage.

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 93:

Dense and brooding, revealing plum, cherry, earth, menthol and tobacco flavors. On the austere side today, with buried fruit and dominant tannins, yet this has fine equilibrium and extended length.
