The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino is his best to date, quite dark in its ruby-garnet tonality and ample sensations of clove, vanilla, and sandalwood. though better integrated with the plum and raspberry fruit than in the past. The intense and powerful palate, concentrated, solid, and dense, is sweet and richly fruity and the depth and energy of the flavors indicate a significant life span ahead, a good fifteen years. Only a rise in the level of the oak on the finish keeps the score from going higher.

Deep, bright red. Exotic aromas of raspberry liqueur, roasted coffee and mocha. Lush, large-scaled, dense and sappy, with a compelling sweetness; really expands in the mouth. Perhaps a bit obvious and full-blown but sound acids give this wonderfully smooth, rich, fairly primary wine plenty of shape and sex appeal.

Giancarlo Pacenti is widely considered to be one of the finest owner-winemakers in the Brunello region. Like many producers here, he owns two Brunello vineyards in the Montalcino area, totaling nearly 50 acres. Pacenti believes that his 17 acres in the cooler, northern part of the area provide aromas and elegance, whereas his 32 acres farther south give the wine its structure, power and fine tannins.

Good medium ruby. Slightly high-toned aromas of dark berries, nuts and menthol. Dense, thick and powerful, with a lovely penetrating sweetness. Still a bit dominated by its structure and showing limited complexity today. Finishes with big tannins that are chewy, lush and sweet. I'd give this one six years in the cellar, at which point it may well merit an even higher score.

This estate began making a limited-production Brunello in the late 1980s from 5 acres of vines. Today, with nearly 50 acres of Sangiovese grapes, winemaker Giancarlo Pacenti has increased production of his top Brunello without affecting quality. Pacenti uses grapes from two estate-owned vineyards. He feels that one adds a full, ripe dimension to his wine, while the other adds a full, ripe dimension to his wine, while the other adds power and mineral character.

Very ripe and powerful style. Full-bodied, with lots of fruit and a chewy finish. An extracted style, but it will come around with bottle age. Impressive concentration for the vintage. Best after 2004.

Winemaker's Notes:

Since the 1995 vintage, Giancarlo Pacenti's Brunello has annually won Gambero Rosso's most prestigious Tre Bicchieri (Three Glass) award. These are quintessential Sangioveses that are wonderfully aromatic, opulently rich and powerfully structured. Giancarlo is considered to be one of the top Brunello pruducers.
