A bit indistinct on the nose. Shows an attractive if odd array of aromas that range from figs to creamy oak, and settle into a beefy, herbal and mineral toned groove with air. On the palate, this is soft and well balanced with an easy style. Pleasant, slightly olivey red berry fruit is accented with mineral notes and tannins that build on the back end, clipping the finish. 88pts

Pulled this out on my wife's birthday with about a dozen friends and family in the kitchen eating pizza and everyone enjoyed. Big tannins, but balanced with fruit an nice long finish. Very dry. Noticed a number of guests picking up and looking at the bottle. Pulled out the second bottle which I rarely do. A friend that did not attend tried it a few days later and though it was closed and over the top.

    The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino saturates the palate with deep layers of dark red fruit, violets, new leather and spices. The aromas and flavors grow beautifully with air, showing remarkable intensity all the way through to the expansive, textured finish. This is a brilliant effort from Giancarlo Pacenti. The Brunello saw 18-20 days on the skins, followed by malolactic fermentation and aging in French oak barrels, of which roughly 80% were new. The vineyard sources are approximately 4.5 hectares in Sant'Angelo and Piancornello (in the south of Montalcino) and 5 hectares in Pelagrilli (in the north). Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. An iron streak runs through the middle of this firmly structured Brunello, leading to core flavors of black cherry, tobacco and wild herbs. This stays taut and racy through the finish, but needs time to soften its tannins. Best from 2013 through 2025.-B.S. This is a gorgeous expression from Montalcino that opens with opulent and beautifu...

    Gorgeous, perfumed aromas of cherry, strawberry and raspberry follow through to a full body, with super well-integrated tannins and a long finish. Wonderfully crafted for the vintage. Best after 2009.

    Perfumed with rose and ripe cherry. Full-bodied, with bright acidity and clean, mineral, floral and berry character on the palate. Tight and firm, but shows wonderful promise. This is chewy and develops in the glass. Best from 2011 through 2017.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Pacenti’s Brunello di Montalcino is a great Sangiovese, and a true reflection of the potential of the estate’s terroir. Clearly, everything begins with meticulous selection in the vineyard of the best bunches. Each lot is then harvested, vinified and aged separately. About 13 months after the harvest, Pacenti and Glories taste the results of these separate vinifications, and decide on the final assemblage. Then the Brunello goes on to complete its 24 months of barrel-aging in French barriques. 18 months of bottle-fining follows. Annual production of Brunello is around 30.000 bottles. Out of the 1990 end 2004 vintages, Pacenti has also produced a very limited quantities of bottles, of a special Cru, “SP” ,coming from a single north vine planted by Siro Pacenti beginning 1970 .
