Siro Pacenti Rosso di Montalcino 2002

Member Review by 97mjr:

On the first night only had one glass after a 1995 Arnaldo-Caprai Sagratino Anni 25; tough act to follow. But again i found this wine full-bodied and smooth with bitter chocolate, cherries, some plum, berries, fine tannins on the palate. Ready to drink right out of the bottle. An excellent value.On the second night, it was even more robust. Slightly rust-tinged violet color. A bouquet of big red fruit and pepper; on the palate bitter chocolate and cherries (less plum) finishing with silky tannins and minerality. Still very smooth and balanced. This is the kind of Rosso that makes it easy to cellar the Brunellos; also it illustrates how an off-year allows production of excellent secondary wines. Wish I had more.
