Winemaker Notes

Scents of black cherry, licorice, forest floor, minerals and a stylish coating of vanillin oak. Deep, full and lush on the palate, with core of succulent fruit, beautifully integrated tannins, and a long, complex, utterly profound finish. Serve it at 18 / 20 °C with matured cheeses and game.

Blend: 60% Sangiovese 20% Cabernet 20% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 92
James Suckling

A fruity that shows raspberry fool, glazed cherries and burnt oranges. Medium-bodied, soft and fresh on the finish. Sangiovese, merlot and cabernet sauvignon.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

A blend of 60% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot, this offers enticing scents of fragrant blue flower, mature black-skinned berry and whiffs of camphor. All about understated elegance, the bright, linear palate features Marasca cherry, red currant and star anise alongside lithe tannins and fresh acidity. It closes on an almond note.

Piccini Winery Video

The Piccini family is rooted in the heart of Chianti and profoundly linked to the region’s rich winemaking culture. Their story began in 1882, when Angiolo Piccini bought 7 hectares (17 acres) of vineyards and began producing wines under the motto: "It's not how much wine we make, but how much passion we put in our work."  Under the guidance of Mario Piccini, the fourth generation of the family, Piccini is today one of the most distinctive, dynamic and innovative Italian estates represented among the top 25 largest Italian producers. The Chianti Orange Label is the iconic wine, and reflects the family’s ambition to rediscover Chianti as a contemporary wine. The wines are grounded in tradition yet have an innovative, charming and fun personality, providing a bold and exciting choice for wine lovers around the world. 

Tenute Piccini is among the most prominent wine producers in Tuscany, playing a leading role in the production of Chianti, Chianti Classico and Montalcino wines. The family has five other stand-alone properties in top Tuscan wine regions as well as the two “volcanic estates” on the Etna and Vulture mountains, a parallel project to the successful Piccini brand. The family’s philosophy behind the boutique estates is very classical: producing wines that reflect the region, focusing on expressiveness of the grapes variety in relation to the area of origin.  

The family estates have been converted to organic farming. These practices, together with a selection of drought-tolerant rootstocks, lower density trellising systems, indigenous grape varieties replacing some of the less suitable international ones, aim at a holistic approach towards sustainable vine growing.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
