Siro Pacenti Rosso di Montalcino 2010
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 Rosso, often considered the epitome of a "baby-Brunello", is ripe yet elegant, displaying notes of red currant and velvety tannins. 100% hand-harvested and hand-selected Sangiovese Grosso, the wine is vinified in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks and then matured for 1 year in French-oak barriques, of which about 30-35% are new and the rest of 1-year-old. About 3,000 cases produced annually.
Editorial Reviews for Siro Pacenti Rosso di Montalcino
Rather sweet on the nose, and toasty with simple sweet fruit layered over some vanilla and topped with floral nuance. Surprisingly cool and compact on entry with great acids and polished tannins lending this a smooth fee. Today it's just a touch short and shows a hint of heat but there's plenty of chewy fruit here helping to buffer the palate. This needs a bit of time to further integrate and gains some tannic punch with time in the glass. 89pts

Plenty of dried cherries, with chocolate and flowers follow through to a full body, with a dense fruit and tannin structure. Solid. Pacenti makes great Brunello and fine Rosso. Better in 2013. James Suckling. A Sangiovese wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2010 Siro Pacenti Rosso di Montalcino 750ml
