This is a distinguished wine, finely crafted, seamless in nature, and elegant. It shows a velvety magenta hue and its aromas, unyielding at first, hide blackberry and cherry fruit underneath. Youthful and linear when first opened, this wine expands, showing deep, full, creamy fruit and a crisp, tight, charcoal stone finish. Match with lamb for a culinary delight.

The 2007 Rosso di Montalcino is a decidedly firm, imposing Rosso packed with fruit. Readers should not mistake this for an easygoing wine. It is anything but that. This richly textured, powerful Rosso flows onto the palate with superb richness in its dark red fruit, smoke, minerals and tobacco. Everything is supported by firm yet sweet tannins all the way through to the finish where a blast of tar adds a final note of complexity. Pacenti is in a class with few peers when it comes to Rosso di Montalcino. Anticipated maturity: 2011ndash;2017.

Shows plum and blackberry aromas, with hints of flowers. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Racy and clean.

The highly enjoyable medium-bodied 2004 Rosso di Montalcino displays a lovely color, vibrant sweet fruit, excellent length and freshness with much style and sophistication, confirming that Pacenti is in the company of a select few when it comes to Rosso di Montalcino. A great effort. Anticipated maturity: 2006ndash;2010.

Damson fruit, with rosemary, meat and a hint of toasty oak. Medium body, with fine tannins and a fresh, minerally finish. Well done for the vintage. Drink now.

A nicely balanced red, with berry and light oaky character. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a minerally finish. Best after 2004.

Concerning the seriousness and professionalism of the producer there is little to say, as evidenced by his 2002 Rosso di Montalcino, spicy, substantial, and long and with appealing caramel notes. The tannins need a bit of time, but this is an important wine for the vintage.
