"The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino PS captures all of the promise I sensed when I first tasted it last year. Freshly cut flowers, bright fruit, licorice and spices play off each other as this fabulous Brunello shows off its considerable pedigree. The fruit takes on darker tonalities as the wine gains weight and depth in the glass. All the elements meld together beautifully on a long finish of extraordinary beauty. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. Despite all of his success, Giancarlo Pacenti is not the type of person to rest on his laurels. Today Pacenti is creating the final blend for his main Brunello far earlier than in the past, an important change Pacenti believes will allow his wine to age more harmoniously both in barrel and then in bottle. It will be interesting to see how this development plays out, as there are at least two approaches on creating blends. A second school of thought believes in aging component wines separately, which allows for more control over the final blend in the event some lots over/underachieve relative to initial expectations. I also noted better integration of oak than in previous vintages. Pacenti is more careful with the washing and seasoning of his new barrels than in the past, and the percentage of new oak for the top Brunelli is now around 60-80%. The Pacenti range consisted of just one Brunello for many years. Today there are three Brunelli: the entry-level Pelagrilli (from young vines of 25-35 years of age near the winery), the single-vineyard PS (from an old-vine plot near the winery) and the straight Brunello (from 35+ year-old vines that brings together fruit from Pacenti’s holdings in both the north and south of Montalcino).

"A silky and refined red, with plum, berries and hints of dried spices. Full body, with a lovely balance in the palate. So layered and intense. Builds at the finish. Better in 2016."
