We traveled from Montepulciano to Montalcino in order to taste some world class Brunello. The tasting experience at Ciacci Piccolomini was exceptional. Exceptional for many reasons. (1) The wine was very good. (2) The tasting rooms was gorgeous. (3) The tasting expert running the show was passionate about their product and made sure we were comfortable. (4) We were in... More

Our private tour began in the old wine cellar of the historical home in the village. The extremely knowledgeable Nicoletta told us all about the of the background of the family and the wine and how the wine cellar is still used but reserved for their BEST grapes. Then we drove to the modern facility for a tour of the... More

Lovely Nicoletta helped us arrange a tour & tasting event for a group of about 35, the staff went above and beyond, setup a beautiful outdoor area for us, with tasty aperitivo and fantastic selection of wine! This was a post wedding event which also included a couple of birthdays... We will cherish the memory for years to come and... More

My wife and I just had one of the most informative and private tastings ever. With the exception of having a very good friend give us a private tasting in Napa, this was the best and most engaging ever. Lucretzia is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her Brunellos. We took a 45 minute tour of the facilities (need to book... More

The tour started in the village with a quick history lesson and a visit to the original wine storage cellar - very cool. From there, to the vineyard and what a treat! Learned all about the production process, Alessandra was great - her explanations were easy to follow and truly interesting. Then came the fun part - the wine tasting... More

This was a fantastic experience for us; we loved the beautiful scenery at the vineyard and we ended up with a private tour since no one else reserved. We started with a tour of the winemaking area and learned a bit of the interesting history behind the ownership, and then we had the tasting of 5 wines along with the... More

Just visited in July 14 and had a great outdoor wine tasting. Lucrezia was terrific at explaining the their offerings. We bough some great Brunello's and shipped them back to the states. A very beautiful place.

This vineyard in Montelcino was outstanding. Nestled away off a small dirt road, it produces some of the finest Brunellos in the world. They were really friendly, the tasting was generous and the accompanying meats a perfect match. Do try this one if you're in the area.

We were taken there by the hosts of our hotel in Montalcino - they recommended it and arranged it. We both work in cellar doors in South Australia and had not been aware of this winery prior to our visit. It certainly did not disappoint. We were treated to a tasting of both their superb olive oil and their wines... More

When it comes to winery visits and degustations, they all tend to seem the same after a while. They show you cellars and barriques, let you taste their younger and as a rule most simple wines and forward you toward the shop. But this one is different. We came with intention to stay for a couple of hours and eneded... More
