This might just be the best value Super Tuscan on the market! Grown by renowned Brunello producer Ciacci Piccolomini, the grapes for this wine could be destined for something thrice the price but for a well patrolled two foot wide stream...

Amongst Ciacci's vineyards rolls a very attractive stream - for the Ciacci family, it is a very expensive stream. To one side of it, their vineyards are classified as Brunello di Montalcino, one of Italy's finest wine appellations. To the other side, it is not. As such, a little added Cabernet and Merlot, along with a slosh of Shiraz, which makes this a super-drinkable wine which still has the Sangiovese key to Ciacci's DNA running through its core. Even the best producers know we need to quaff every now and then, but that doesn't need to mean inferior ingredients, just a slight twist on an old theme.

This Toscana IGT is that twist, offering an approachable wine which is fantastic value. Mid-weight, elegant and long with fine tannins, the un-oaked fruit dominates with dark cherry and berry flavours.

From the producer:
  Ruby red in colour. On the palate the 2015 is fruity, lightly herbal and enriched by hints of spices. This wine is ready for drinking, full bodied, and quite soft and well balanced. This is a very versatile wine and can match all courses of a meal, especially meat-based courses, salami and cheese.
