Siro Pacenti Brunello di Montalcino Vecchie Vigne 2013

External Review:

Pacenti’s flagship 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Vecchie Vigne is built on serious texture and resonance. Here, too, the flavors are dark and textured to the core. Dark red and back stone fruits, new leather and cedar gradually open up in the glass, but the 2010 needs time to fully come together, partly because the Vecchie Vigne sees a little more new oak than the Pelagrilli. Readers should note the Vecchie Vigne is the new name for what has long been Giancarlo Pacenti’s flagship Brunello. The 2010 is a blend of equal parts fruit from the north and south of Montalcino.

This brooding version is lean and sinewy in profile, with dusty, chewy tannins gripping the cherry and strawberry fruit. This comes around with air, showing more sweetness and balance. Best from 2019 through 2033. 2,500 cases made.
