Siro Pacenti Brunello 2003

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.

The 2003 Brunello di Montalcino is all about understatement and balance. Crushed flowers, raspberries and spices all emerge from this gorgeous, soft-textured wine. Notes of underbrush, tobacco and tar add further complexity on the mid-palate as the wine opens to reveal outstanding length and complexity. This is truly a remarkable effort, particularly in the way the tannins are so seamlessly integrated into the wine. While the 2003 Brunello doesnandrsquo;t quite reach the level of his superb 2001, this wine should be on readersandrsquo; short lists of wines to seek out in 2003. It is a commendable effort in every way. Anticipated maturity: 2008andndash;2018.

Like finely woven silk. Incredible texture to this subtle and complex red, with black licorice, mineral and blackberry. Full-bodied and thick, yet reserved and refined. Very classy. Giancarlo Pacento is a master winemaker. Best after 2004.

Beautiful spice, berry, plum and raspberry character with hints of spices. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a long, long finish. This is always one of the greatest producers of Brunello and 1999 is no different. If you couldn't get his 1997 (97 points) buy this. Best after 2006.

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.

Opaque garnet with blackish tones. Inviting, multidimensional aromas of cinnamon, black pepper, glove leather and chestnut puree. Intense flavors of blackberry, mint and marzipan. A dense, concentrated wine, with substantial extract and full tannic thrust. At once juicy and plush, with lovely spice components emerging on the long finish.
