Siro Pacenti Brunello di Montalcino 2008
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Wine SpectatorViolet, black currant and cherry aromas and flavors define this supple, harmonious Brunello, which is elegant and intense, with dusty yet ripe tannins lending support. It all comes together on the lingering, spice- and mineral-tinged aftertaste. Best from 2017 through 2035. 2,500 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastSiro Pacenti hits the nail on the head with a wine that is concentrated and rich, but elegant and fresh at the same time. Fleshy extraction is supported by black cherry, licorice, rum cake, leather and spice. The wine's natural freshness offsets that fruity richness and drives a long, smooth finish. Drink after 2016.
