Ateo, Ciacci Piccolomini

Ateo, meaning “atheist,” was first produced in the 1989 vintage. In this vintage, Ciacci decided not to produce a Brunello di Montalcino. The decision coincided with the first harvest of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from their estate vineyards. The wine is comprised of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and is fermented in stainless steel/concrete vats before aging in 3-hectoliter oak barrels for 18 months.
