Blend: 75% Sangiovese 25% Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon
From: Toscana IGT, Tuscany, Italy
Taste: An ideal daily wine, a full-bodied Sangiovese softened by the addition of a touch of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah. Fruity and lightly herbal with perfumes of flowers leather and a dusty hint of earth and spice. This a wine ready to drink now, and also happens to be a great value. The Sangiovese Grosso component in the wine comes from the youngest plots close to the vineyards dedicated to the production of Rosso di Montalcino DOC and Brunello di Montalcino DOCG.
Pairing: Perfect with grilled meats, charcuterie or whatever Thursday brings to the dinner table. Since we love those weeknight inspirations, we’re sharing one of our own via Eric Kim for a revival of the non-tv dinner version of Salisbury Steak.
About. The Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona estate is located on the south east slope of the municipality of Montalcino, close to the medieval village of Castelnuovo dell’Abate and to the famous Romanesque Abbey of Sant’Antimo, which dates back to the 11th century. The entire estate, extending over 220 hectares of which 55.5 are in vines and 40 in olive groves, has all the typical characteristics of the Tuscan countryside adorned with rolling hills, pastures and woods with unforgettable colours. Set between Arna hill and the Orcia River to the south-east, it offers a unique panorama with the beautiful contour of Mount Amiata in the background. Wild animals, scents of flowers and plants and the typical farmhouses dotted around, create a peaceful and calm atmosphere in this area.
This multifaceted wine is suited to day to day drinking, easily matched with all foods, full bodied thanks to the blend of the grapes used. The Sangiovese Grosso into this IGT comes from the youngest plots close to the vineyards dedicated to the production of Rosso di Montalcino DOC and Brunello di Montalcino DOCG.
Vineyard: located in soil of medium grain with good levels of marl, dating from the Eocene period at an altitude that ranges from 240 to 360 metres above sea
