The Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona estate is located on the south west slope of the municipality of Montalcino, close to the medieval village of Castelnuovo dell'Abate and to the famous Romanesque Abbey of Sant'Antimo, which dates back to the 9th century.  A smaller part of the property is located near the village of Montenero d'Orcia in the province of Grosseto. The estate, extending over 220 hectares of land (of which roughly 190 in Montalcino and 30 in Montenero d'Orcia), with vines, olive groves, pastures and woods, has all the typical characteristics of the Tuscan countryside adorned with rolling hills and unforgettable colours. Set between Arna hill and the Orcia River to the south-east, it offers a unique panorama with the beautiful contour of Mount Amiata in the background. Wild animals, scents of flowers and plants and the typical farmhouses dotted around, create a peaceful and calm atmosphere in this area.

The origins of the Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona goes back to the 17th century. The oldest part of the property is the Palazzo (it means Palace), erected by Montalcino’s bishop, Fabivs de Vecchis, abbot of S.Antimo abbey. Over the course of the time, the palazzo became property of the Montalcino diocese and was auctioned according to Italian law regarding ecclesiastic property. The palazzo and its lands were purchased by the countess Eva Bernini Cerretani on September 16th 1868. On December 31st 1877 the countess Cerretani sold the entire property to Francesco Ciacci, head of a Castelnuovo-based family. In the mid 1900s, the so called “Palazzo del Vescovo” became known as Palazzo Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona after the marriage between Alberto Piccolomini d’Aragona, a direct descendent of Enea Silvio Piccolomini (Pope Pius II), and Elda Ciacci.
