Bright red. The fresh, clean, perfumed nose hints at red cherry and blood orange. Then sweet and supple on the palate, but with a lively mouthfeel to the red fruit and underbrush flavors thanks to harmonious, vibrant acidity. Has much more midpalate flesh to support its acidity than some other less successful 2013 Brunellos, all of which are made in a similar high-acid style typical of the vintage. Finishes broad, savory and nicely persistent. This 2013 from Ciacci Piccolomini is made in a much cooler-climate style than is usual for this producer. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, April 2018)

Medium to light colored, can see through. Red fruits, plum, tobacco on the nose. Flavors are pretty consistent on the palate. Elegant and well balanced. A touch of sweetness supported by enough acidity. Firm fine tannins. Very mineral. Long finish with loaded red fruits. Neat, but drank too young. Need quite some decanting, warmer temperature.
