Ciacci Piccolomini Ateo 2013 750ML

Limited to 1000 cases per vintage, the Ateo blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot was first released back in 1989. Ateo, meaning atheist in Italian, was originally created because the 1989 vintage was so poor, Ciacci didn't bottle their flagship Brunello di Montalcino. Coincidentally, 1989 was their first harvest of two international varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. 20 years later, this delightful blend in a Ciacci classic.

Rating
"The 2012 Ateo, Ciacci's Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend, captures the essence of this warm, radiant vintage in its exuberant fruit and juicy personality. Black cherry, plum, spice and licorice flesh out in a succulent wine to drink now and over the next decade or so. The blend is 50/50, but it is the Merlot that really seems to jump from the glass today." Antonio Galloni, 92 Points

Wine maker notes
Ciacci Piccolmini is one of the most sought-after producers in all of Italy. This ancient estate has 35 hectares of vines in the prized Castelnuovo dell'Abate, including the "Pianrosso" vineyard from which the best grapes are selected for the Brunello di Montalcino. Plantings of Syrah, Cabernet, and Merlot are to the south, where the Orcia river provides a milder micro-climate. The non-traditional wines are as exciting as the Brunello, and Ateo, is a statement against the restrictive laws that govern winemaking in Italy. Statement or not, the Ateo is a gloriously ripe, full-bodied, velvety-textured expression of Tuscany and much richer and powerful than their flagship Brunello.

Very nice Tuscan-Bordeaux blend. Will be even better after a couple of years in the cellar to soften and loosen up.
