Pizza wine! No formal notes but I drank this alongside the Mocali RdM and I found this to be more to my preference. The Ciacci Piccolomini has a touch more polish and class; with a bit more depth while still being very true to place. Don’t get me wrong, the Mocali was good, this was just a touch better in my opinion.

Ciacci's 2017 Rosso di Montalcino is racy and inviting, as wines from this vintage tend to be. Soft curves push forward a core of succulent red cherry, sweet spice, tobacco, dried flowers and rose petal. Although the 2017 has quite a bit of richness, it remains translucent and very Sangiovese in feel. The Rosso is a very pretty wine, and a terrific value. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, October 2019)

Hearty great every day drinker. Plenty of fruit. Not harsh on the finish. Enjoyable

A very nice medium body wine. Fairly smooth with a touch of alcohol on the tongue and some earth as well and medium tannins. Dark red fruit.
