Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona

Vigna di Pianrosso Riserva Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 1997


1997! A standout vintage for Brunello. Ciacci being one of my all time favorites. Quite opaque in the glass with a brown-brick rim. I'm at the 2 hour mark and it's still opening.

Lots of spice on the nose. White pepper, muddled aged cherries, fresh tobacco, and something in the Christmas tree family.

It's surprising how alive this wine tastes! Definitely cherry on the palate, acidity is now quite low, but tannins are still very firm. This baby isn't going anywhere!!! I have a couple of other '97s and now have no fear holding them a bit longer.

Needs time to open. Starts out full and just lingers to get better. Black cherry, tannins that hug you. Nose of tobacco. Rich color. This winery is one that bleeds consistency. #300 for me. — 3 years ago
