Ciacci Piccolomini d`Aragona

Classification

DOC
The Tenuta Ciacci Piccolomini d`Aragona is located on the south west side of Montalcino in the beautiful Tuscan wine region. The vineyards benefit from a particularly mild microclimate ensuring optimum conditions for the grapes to grow and only organic fertilisers are used on the estate.

Ateo was created following a less than ideal Brunello vintage in 1989 which coincided with the first harvest of newly planted Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot vineyards. The success of Ateo was such that it has since become a classic wine for the estate.

The bouquet is herbal, spicy, and with open blackurrant, blackberry, licorice & eucalyptus aromas. Finely structured & full bodied with soft, fleshy fruit balanced harmoniously with firm tannins. A wine with of great character and vibrancy with a satisfying & lenghty aftertaste.
