Ciacci Piccolomini d’ Aragona vineyards are located in the south, south-west side of Montalcino at an altitude between 240 and 360 mt above sea level. The stony slopes near the Orcia river benefit from a particularly mild microclimate and here the vines grow in ideal climatic conditions. Due to its strategic position the Vigna di Pianrosso (meaning Pianrosso vineyard) represents the best expression of the estate in terms of quality and terroir. For these reasons Ciacci Piccolomini d’ Aragona selects the best grape for Brunello Pianrosso and Brunello Riserva Vigna di Pianrosso from this single vineyard. The care and attention that Ciacci Piccolomini d’ Aragona pays to the grapes and the vines themselves is true to peasant tradition but with the advantage of modern resources, thereby allowing to enhance the modernity and relevance of its wines.
