About Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona:

The origin of the Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona estate goes back to the 17th century. The oldest part of the property is the Palazzo (meaning Palace), erected by Montalcino’s Bishop, Fabivs de’ Vecchis, Abbot of Sant Antimo abbey. Over the course of time, the Palazzo became the property of the Montalcino diocese and was auctioned according to Italian law regarding ecclesiastic property.  In 1877 entire property to Francesco Ciacci, head of a Castelnuoveo-based family. In the mid-1900s, the so-called “Palazzo del Vescovo” became known as the Palazzo Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona after the marriage between count Alberto Piccolomini d’Aragona, a direct descendent of Enea Silvio Piccolomini (Pope Pius
II), and Elda Ciacci.

Today, “Brother-and-sister team Paolo and Lucia Bianchini continue to make excellent Brunellos in the tradition of their father, Giuseppe, who died in 2004. They are better employing their new modern cellars, which were completed [in 2006], and continue to maintain their south-facing vineyards at near pristine levels. The Brunellos emphasize finesse and balance, with layers of ultrafine tannins and subtle ripe fruit, yet they age incredibly well. The Bianchini family was gifted its Brunello estate in 1985 by Countess Elda Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona, who had no heirs; Giuseppe had been the estate manager.”
