This is very intense on the nose with blue fruit, cool stones, brambleberries and blackberries. Wet earth, too. Full-bodied and extremely dense and powerful with a super center palate of fruit and ripe yet compact tannins. Lightly chewy and expressive. Superb transparency and integration. Goes on for minutes. One of the best Brunellos I have tasted in my career. Try after 2021, but already amazing.

View all from Siro Pacenti
Siro Pacenti"Giancarlo Pacenti is the best winemaker in the appellation of Brunello di Montalcino. Everything is done in the best possible way and at the right time in his well-kept vineyards and the pristine small winery under his house. His Brunellos are usually a blend of different vineyards from both the south and north sides of the Montalcino hill, giving them great richness and structure as well as freshness. They are aged in French oak barrels yet show very little wood character, and their crystal clear style is one that ages extremely well. "

"Giancarlo Pacenti is by far the leading exponent of the modern school of Brunello di Montalcino. No other producer has succeeded in crafting wines of this much textural beauty and refinement." – Antonio Galloni

"Year after year, Siro Pacenti (run by the detailed-minded Giancarlo Pacenti) is one of the estates I most enjoy tasting during my annual trip to Montalcino. Talk about hitting the nail on the head."– Wine Advocate

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.

Best Wine I have ever had

"First off I must say that Brunello di Montalcino over the last 10 years has become my favorite appellation of wine. I have accumulated approximately 500 bottle to this point in stock.I have had 25 to 30 different interpretations of this wine from 6 or 7 different vintages. Many of my favorites have been from the 2010 vintage.After having opened 3 bottles of Siro Pacenti 'Vecche Vigne' Brunello di Montalcino 2015 it is not only the best Brunello, but absolutely the best wine that I have ever had.2015 Brunello's are going to be one of the most sort after vintages going forward."
