"A seriously floral Brunello that combines rose petals and raspberry essence with more intense dried strawberries, chocolate shavings, herbs and cedar. The palate doesn't hold back but is still extremely well balanced and refined with tight, grainy tannins and a long, succulent finish. Drink in 2020. Publish Date: Monday, November 27, 2017"
100% Sangiovese from 25 year old vines on the northern side of Montalcino. Hand-harvested and rigorously selected by hand both before and after the destemming. Aged 24 months in French oak barriques.
Giancarlo Pacenti is one of the most progressive winemakers of Brunello di Montalcino. His fame has been steadily growing over the last two decades. Pacenti, who took over his family’s estate in 1988, ages his wines entirely in barrique, with the aim of making clean, rich and intense wines. His fruit is sourced from two family-owned vineyards in very different areas of Montalcino: one to the northeast of the town, Pelagrilli, where the wines show great fragrance, silkiness and relatively soft tannins, and one in the hotter southwest area near Sant’Angelo in Colle, known for full-bodied, powerful, and structured wines. His ‘Pelagrilli’ Brunello, though a single vineyard, is his entry level cuvee, and one of the best values in all of Montalcino. Coming from slightly younger vines than Giancarlo’s Brunello “Classico,” the ‘Pelagrilli’ is a more approachable wine. His 2010 Brunello Riserva “PS” was awarded 97 points by James Suckling. Pacenti’s bold style and commitment to excellence puts his wines among the best of Italy.
