Ciacci Piccolomini D'Aragona

The estate boasts its origins since the seventeenth century and preserves its historical heritage in a building built in the same period by the Montalcinese Bishop and Abbot of the Abbey of S. Antimo, Fabivs de 'Vecchis. Upon the Bishop's death, the Palace was put to auction together with the vast agricultural properties following the Italian law on the assets of the Ecclesiastical Axis and purchased on September 16, 1868 by Countess Eva Bernini Cerretani. On December 31, 1877, the Countess Cerretani in turn sold the entire estate to the Castelnuovo Ciacci family. Following the marriage in the first half of the 1900s between Count Alberto Piccolomini of Aragon, descendant of the lineage of Enea Silvio Piccolomini known as Pope Pius II, and Miss Elda Ciacci, the so-called Bishop's Palace becomes Palazzo Ciacci Piccolomini d ' Aragon. In 1985, with the extinction of the family, the property is bequeathed to Giuseppe Bianchini, already a factor of the estate for many years, who applies a totally new and avant-garde production philosophy for those years, developing and increasing production, quality of wines and opening the export of our products to the world. Giuseppe passed away in February 2004, he left the task of continuing his work to his sons Paolo and Lucia. Tenuta Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona, located southeast of the municipality of Montalcino, extends in the immediate vicinity of the medieval village of Castelnuovo dell'Abate and the famous Romanesque abbey of S. Antimo dating back to the 11th century. A.D. Spread over a large area of ​​220 hectares, 55.5 of which dedicated to vineyards and 40 to olive groves, it has the typical characteristics of the Tuscan countryside adorned with rolling hills, pastures and forests with unforgettable colors. Nestled between the Poggio d'Arna and the Orcia river that delimits the borders to the south, it offers a unique panorama delimited in the background by the typical profile of Monte Amiata. The scents, the wildlife and the farmhouses scattered downstream are the natural setting for the tranquility of these places. Vigna Ferraiole, Vigna Egle, Vigna Contessa and Vigna Colombaio are just some of our most important Sangiovese grosso vineyards. The spurred cordon vineyards with southern exposure are located in the heart of the Val d'Orcia Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The composition of the soil is of medium-textured galestrate type of Eocene origin. The Sangiovese grosso clone is selected from the old vineyards on the estate, characterized by a loose bunch and a large grape with a thick skin. It is a particularly representative type of Sangiovese, originally from the Montalcino area, which gives quality even in difficult years.
