Ciacci Piccolomini D’Aragona Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG “Santa Caterina d’Oro” (2012)
The quality of the grapes to be allocated to the Riserva type, produced only in the best vintages, is initially determined with rigorous manual selection in the Pianrosso vineyards, followed subsequently by a long maceration on the marc and a prolonged aging in barrel and in bottle.
Vineyards: 11.69 hectares boast the term “Pianrosso”, located in medium-textured soils of Eocene origin between 240 and 360 meters above sea level, where the best grapes are selected.
Grape variety: 100% Sangiovese
Vinification: In stainless steel containers and vitrified cement tanks at a controlled temperature by means of cooling jackets and immersion plates. This is followed by aging in Slavonian oak barrels from 7.5 to 30 hl for over 3 years and bottle aging for more than 12 months.
Tasting notes: Intense, ample and complex aromas. Fruity, spicy, sometimes ethereal: the notes of ripe red berry fruit harmonize nicely with multiple spices; the taste is warm, harmonious with pronounced but soft tannins; a full-bodied wine with a long taste-olfactory persistence that will evolve again with a long aging in the bottle.
Pairing: Suitable to accompany mainly structured second courses of jugged meats, roast game and furred game. Appropriate with very aged cheeses or tasted only as a meditation wine.
Format: 750 ml
