From one of the more remote and wild corners of the idyllic Val d’Orcia, near the medieval hamlet of Castelnuovo dell’Abate in Southern Tuscany, comes a single-vineyard Brunello di Montalcino of power and grace.  The Bianchini Family behind the estate are committed to quality, releasing the Brunello from the Pianrosso Vineyard (and their Riserva Brunello from the same vineyard) only in the best vintages.  2018 continues a four year trend of success in what was a cooler growing season for Brunello, more reminiscent of the 1990’s.  This cooler, more classic vintage is a bit of an anomaly, with hotter growing seasons recorded in 19, 20, 21 and 22.  These hotter conditions can cause the Sangiovese Grape to lose some of its unique tangy elegance in favor of sheer power.  The 2018 effort from Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona showcases this finesse, with blue and red berries, cherries lifted by citrus and herbal notes like thyme, sage and lavender, mingling with violets, orange peel, licorice cola, mocha, coffee, vanilla and tobacco.  Framing all of this complexity with needed structure is a harmonious balance between elevated acidity from the cooler growing season and a present but seamless tannic backbone.  This is one beautiful bottle of Cru Brunello whether you drink it now or cellar it for a decade or more.
