Piccini

The family-owned Piccini winery was established in 1882 by Angiolo Piccini.

In 1920, his son Mario continued its development by extending the company’s business across the domestic market in Italy. Piccini entered a second phase of rapid growth in the early 1960s, under the leadership of third-generation Pierangiolo Piccini. In 1983, Mario Piccini joined his father and helped make the U.S. market a priority, in a successful effort that strengthened the Piccini name.

Through the use of personal visits to American markets, on top of the production of high-quality wines, the Piccini winery has solidified the family stronghold on the Tuscan wine segment in the United States.

The Piccini winery is located in the heart of the Chianti Classico zone and possesses strong Tuscan traditions. Now in its 126th year of business, the Piccini winery torch has been passed down to the fourth generation of Piccini’s. New DOCG wines now complete the entire Tuscan portfolio including Chianti, Chianti Classico, Chianti Classico Riserva and a new Super Tuscan, Sasso al Poggio and Brunello di Montalcino.

Piccini Chianti DOCG

In 1882 Angiolo Piccini founded Piccini in the province of Siena. He built a company that was ahead of its time, able to make the most of the work in the vineyards and the cellars, with the ability to conquer the demanding palates in all of Tuscany. His son, Mario, at the helm of the company in the 1920's, introduced Piccini wines to all of Italy. He also began exporting abroad, immediately garnering a place in the forefront of the wine industry. In the 1960's Perangiolo Piccini strengthened the company's leadership, contributing to the growth of the entire Italian division of winemaking. Mario and Martina, the fourth generation of the family, are involved in developing innovative techniques with the family wine making tradition. Today, Piccini is among the world's top 30 producers and exporters of wine. Fruity nose, cherry driven, fresh palate of light, fine fruit, medium body. Drinks incredibly well with simple pasta dishes, pork or classic roast chicken. An absolute perfect pizza wine.


Piccini Sasso Al Poggio

“Super Tuscan” is a term used to refer to the great wines of Tuscany, labeled under the term “IGT” (Indicazione Geografica Tipica). These wines once struggled with their designation as the wine regulatory council in Tuscany did not allow the use of “foreign” varietals, such as Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, in wines they granted as DOC and DOCG quality. Piccini and the other wine producers in Tuscany decided to break the quality seal of DOC and DOCG, making the wines they believed in with huge success. “Sasso al Poggio,” which means “stone on the hill,” is a “Super Tuscan” named after its birth place in the hilly areas of Tuscany. The wine is an intimate expression of Tuscany, from the vine roots going deep into the soil to the artful mastery of winemaking. Sasso al Poggio exemplifies what the perfect “Super Tuscan” wine should be and exudes the quality of Piccini’s winemaking, character and history.


Piccini Chianti Classico

In a land of ancient traditions that was civilized in remote periods by the Etruscans, who left many traces of their activity in the wine sector, a legendary wine was created: Chianti Classico. Authentic because it originated in the territory of Chianti; certified because its production is heavily controlled from the vine to the bottle; unique because its quality and identity are protected in Italy and throughout the world and cannot be duplicated. Bright red with a hint of purple. Plum, violet notes mix with lush, ripe berries. Expansive and alive on the palate, with a lingering, velvety feel in the mouthl. The long finish is buried in fruit. A versatile wine.


Piccini Brunello

The grapes were hand-picked in late summer when they were perfectly ripe. Fermentation took place in stainless steel vats for 15- 20 days. The charm of a complex wine like Brunello di Montalcino derives from the aging period, during which the freshly fermented wine matures and slowly absorbs aromas and fragrances from the wood of the barrels. The wine remained in oak for at least 2 years and rested for another 6 months in bottle. Exceptional wines are only produced in the vineyard. For Villa al Cortile, the 13 year old vines are located on the eastern part of Montalcino with a West-Southwest exposure at 1,148 feet above sea level.


Piccini Brunello Riserva

Exceptional wines are only produced in the vineyard. The 13 year old vines are located on the eastern part of Montalcino with a West-Southwest exposure at 1,148 feet above sea level. Only environmentally sustainable growing techniques are used: the cultivation is done with traditional methods without the use of herbicides/pesticides, using exclusively organic fertilizers, following the integrated pest management and using no irrigations. All these efforts are being constantly made in order to create a wine that is an expression of the territory, a landmark on quality of Montalcino with the modern approach that made Piccini wines known internationally.
