98 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "The Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso is a single-vineyard expression that draws its fruit from an 11.7-hectare parcel with moderately thick galestro soils with ancient marine material. This special site, awash under the brilliant light of a big, open sky, does indeed deliver a more pronounced mineral signature, with wild berry, rose and rosemary essence. This is a beautiful wine, taut and silky, with elegant tannins that will endure ambitious bottle aging. Production is 37,000 bottles. Drink: 2024-2048. (Nov 2020)"

98 points International Wine Report: "Ripe and essential, it offers notes of sour cherries in alcohol, dehydrated cherries, pressed flowers and burnt lemon peel. In the background the elegance of the Mediterranean profile enriches the matrix with shades of thyme and rosemary. Medium to full body, juicy and centered offers silky tannins and a slender finish of enveloping harmony. Better from 2021."
