"Only made in the best years, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva PS is a phenomenal achievement. The wine was produced in 2006, 2007, 2010 and will also be released in 2012 and 2015. Fruit is sourced from across a five-hectare vineyard in the northern part of the appellation, but only 1,500 bottles are made using the very best fruit. This is an incredible wine that shows a promising evolution in the glass. The bouquet is fluid and graceful with a very precise and focused delivery. Dark fruit is contrasted against pressed rose, smoked spice and crushed graphite. The finish is silky and very long. Attractive tones of savory smoked meat appear at the very end."

James Suckling 97
"Incredibly perfumed and vibrant with dried berries, flowers and dried strawberries. Full body, a velvety texture and an intense and rich palate. So much richness and length. Better in 2018 but wonderful to taste now."

"The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva PS emerges from a single parcel within the Giancarlo Pacenti's holdings in the Pelagrilli district. The pedigree and finesse of the northern section of Montalcino comes through in spades. Freshly cut flowers, mint, graphite, sweet fruit and spices are woven together in a fabric of notable beauty and pedigree. Floral and lifted throughout, the 2010 is built on energy, precision and balance. This is another fabulous showing from Giancarlo Pacenti. -- Antonio Galloni"

Wine Spectator 94
"Linear in profile, but also dense and focused, with black cherry, black currant, tobacco, licorice and leather flavors permeating the structure. Muscular tannins and leafy, eucalyptus notes ride the finish hard, but this red shows balance overall. Best from 2018 through 2035. 166 cases made. –BS"

Giancarlo Pacenti is one of the most detailed-minded growers in the appellation. Thanks to his old vines and the fact that he farms so much land in the northern, cooler quadrant of the appellation, Giancarlo has made some beautiful wines in 2011. The absolute scene-stealer is the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva PS that is a delight to drink. Giancarlo explains his winemaking philosophy as follows: "If you mistakenly spill a drop of black paint into a bucket of white paint, you change the color of the whole bucket. But if you spill a drop of white paint into a bucket of black paint, nothing happens. That's why it's important not to make mistakes."
