95 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$100/750ml list] This full-bodied red starts off with aromas of leather, forest floor and camphor. Enveloping and structured, the palate shows a weightless concentration, featuring dried cherry, licorice, tobacco and a hint of orange zest framed in velvety tannins. Drink 2024–2029. (Apr 2022)"
94 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "The Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona 2017 Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso shows nice balance and elegance, and it definitely shows the deft hand of the winemaking team in what was not an easy vintage by any stretch. This pretty wine delivers lots of fresh cherry and wild rose, with ferrous earthy, licorice and grilled herb; I also get bay leaf and rosemary sprig. Like the annata 2017 Brunello produced by this estate, the single-vineyard Brunello Pianrosso is distinguished by a sweet cherry note (plus a hefty 15% alcohol) that accompanies the wine from start to finish. Production is 37,000 bottles. Drink: 2024-2042. (Feb 2022)"
94 points James Suckling: "This is a beautifully crafted and polished Brunello for this vintage, with full body and creamy, lightly chewy tannins. Dark berries, walnuts and cedar with dried-flower undertones. Needs time to soften, but very pretty. Drink after 2024. (11/4/21)"
93 points International Wine Report: "Extremely briiliant and mature in the glass showing notes of raspberries, currants, ripe cherries, red flowers, calendula, hawthorn and linden. A lot of citrus dominates the secondary scene and blend with hints of tobacco in this young Brunello. Full bodied, silky tannins and a warm, enveloping finale that gives pleasure in every sip. Slightly hot and spicy showing a subtle alcoholic perception in the aftertaste. Better from 2022."
92 points Eric Guido (Vinous): "[$100 list] A nuanced, delicate bouquet of dried strawberries, roses, hints of sweet spice and crushed rocks lifts up from the charming 2017 Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso. This is remarkably lifted, yet juicy and energetic, as ripe red berries and minerals cascade across the palate. It leaves a coating of violet-tinged florals, along with persistent raspberry and cherry tones. The tannin management here is absolutely stunning, as the Pianrosso finishes structured yet vividly fresh. Drink: 2024-2027. (Dec 2021)"
