Siro Pacenti Rosso di Montalcino 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

These are quintessential Sangioveses that are wonderfully aromatic, opulently rich and powerfully structured. Giancarlo is considered to be one of the top Brunello pruducers. The Rosso, often considered the epitome of a "baby-Brunello", is ripe yet elegant, displaying notes of red currant and velvety tannins. 100% hand-harvested and hand-selected Sangiovese Grosso, the wine is vinified in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks and then matured for 1 year in French-oak barriques, of which about 30-35% are new and the rest of 1-year-old. About 3,000 cases produced annually.
