ABOUT CIACCI PICCOLOMINI D’ARAGONA

In 1877, Countess Eva Bernini Cerretani sold the entire estate to the Ciacci family from Castelnuovo dell’Abate. After the marriage between the count Alberto Piccolomini d’Aragona, a direct discendent of Enea Silvio Piccolomini (Pope Pius II) and Elda Ciacci, the Bishop’s Palace became the Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona Palace.

In 1985 the countess Elda Ciacci bequeathed the entire property to Giuseppe Bianchini, a longtime farmer of the estate, applying a completely brand new and forefront philosophy production for that period, increasing quantity, quality of wines and opening the export worldwide. Giuseppe, unfortunately passed away in February 2004, left the business to his son and daughter, Paolo and Lucia. They are now continuing the passion transmitted directly from their father Giuseppe.

The Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona estate is located on the  slope of the municipality of Montalcino, close to the medieval village of Castelnuovo dell’Abate and to the famous Romanesque Abbey of Sant’Antimo, which dates back to the 11th century. Set between Arna hill and the Orcia River, it offers a unique panorama with the beautiful contour of Mount Amiata in the background. Wild animals, scents of flowers and plants and the typical farmhouses dotted around, create a peaceful and calm atmosphere in this area.
