Producenten"Giancarlo Pacenti is by far the leading exponent of the modern school of Brunello di Montalcino" - Antonio Galloni
Siro Pacenti er den førende eksponent for, hvad man kan kalde moderne Brunello; dvs tæt, koncentreret frugt og tydeligt fadpræg. Vinhuset blev etableret i 1970 af Siro Pacenti, der tilplantede marker i den nordlige del af Montalcino - Pelagrilli - men det var først med Giancarlos overtagelse i 1988 at man begyndte selv at flaske. Giancarlo kunne yderligere tilføje marker til ejendommen, som hans morfar havde plantet i det sydlige Brunello. Der er også senere tilplantet marker i det sydlige
AnmeldelserA very muscular red with plum, blueberry, walnut and dried mushroom character on both the nose and palate. Full and chewy. Fabulous fruit and intensity. Amazing quality for the vintage. Wow.
95 p. Vinous (2011)The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Vecchie Vigne is deep, powerful and explosive. The gravitas of the old vines and the blend of fruit that incorporates fruit from the southern end of the zone in equal parts with the north comes through loud and clear. Macerated cherries, smoke, spices, leather, licorice and French oak flesh out in a dense, stylish Brunello that captures the essence of the Pacenti house style. Drink this creamy, voluptuous Brunello over the next decade or so. - Antonio Galloni
94 p. Jamessuckling.com (2009)A pretty, flawless 2009 Brunello with dark-berry and cherry character, a full body and a silky texture. It's a wine that shows reserve and class for the vintage
93 p. Wine Advocate (2009)The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is comprised of fruit from the northern half of the appellation harvested between October 5 to the 10 and fruit from the southern half harvested the last week of September. This range proved essential in maintaining the balance – especially between sweet fruit and acidity – that defines this beautiful wine. The use of wood (24 months in barrique) has also been executed with care and restraint adding more to the overall texture and richness of the wine than it does to the nose per se. - Monica Larner
17+ p. JancisRobinson.com (2009)Sweeter oak on the nose than their Pelagrilli. Really great fruit character and no sense of overoaking on the palate, but there is less discernible development. The structure is ready to drink, but the flavours need maturation - Richard Hemming MW
92 p. Vinous (2009)The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is richer, deeper and more structured than the Pelagrilli, but I am not sure it is a materially better or more complex wine. Dark red stone fruits, wild flowers, rose petals and sweet spices meld together in this very crafted Brunello from Giancarlo Pacenti. The flagship Brunello is a blend of fruit from both the north sector of Montalcino near the winery and the Piancornello district to the south, with a bit more fruit from the south in this vintage - Antonio Galloni
95 p. Vinous og Wine Advocate (2008)The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is deep, textured and impeccably balanced. Dark cherries, plums, tobacco, crushed rocks and spices blossom in the glass. Here, too, the overall sense of harmony is utterly captivating. A gorgeous wine, the 2008 stands out for its exceptional polish. The style is a bit deeper, richer and more layered than the Pelagrilli, but at the same time remains deeply marked by the prevalence of fruit from the northern side of Montalcino. In 2008 Pacenti lost about a third of his production from the south, which means this is a vintage in which the Brunello incorporated more fruit from the north than the south, roughly a 60/40 split. This is a fabulous effort in a vintage that proved to be full of challenges - Antonio Galloni
93 p. Jamessuckling.com (2008)A beautiful wine with lovely plum and cedar character. Full body, with velvety tannins and a chewy finish. Lots of cocoa powder too.
97 p. Jamessuckling.com (2005)I can't believe how the nose changes from white truffle to berry and black cherry and then goes blueberries and citrus fruits. Full and soft and velvety. It is layered and massive with so much going on. Now sweet tobacco and berries. A wine that is in evolution every moment.
96 p. Vinous og Wine Advocate (2006)The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino saturates the palate with deep layers of dark red fruit, violets, new leather and spices. The aromas and flavors grow beautifully with air, showing remarkable intensity all the way through to the expansive, textured finish. This is a brilliant effort from Giancarlo Pacenti. The Brunello saw 18-20 days on the skins, followed by malolactic fermentation and aging in French oak barrels, of which roughly 80% were new. The vineyard sources are approximately 4.5 hectares in Sant'Angelo and Piancornello (in the south of Montalcino) and 5 hectares in Pelagrilli (in the north). - Antonio Galloni
93 p. Vinous (2005)The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino has aged beautifully. Still with lovely detail and the complexity of early tertiary nuance, the 2005 offers up an attractive mélange of dark red fruit, spice and crushed flowers. The tannins are just a bit angular, but that is pretty much impossible to escape in this vintage. This is a strong showing from Giancarlo Pacenti. - Antonio Galloni
92 p. Wine Advocate (2005)The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino is a pretty wine laced with generous, plummy red berries, flowers and spices. Medium in body, this approachable Brunello is commendable for its soft, forward fruit and refined finish. This is a relatively slender, lithe vintage, and the 2005 Brunello is best enjoyed on the young side. In 2005 the fruit is 60% Piancornello, in the southern part of Montalcino, and 40% Pelagrilli, next to the winery itself. The single-vineyard PS was not produced in 2005. - Antonio Galloni
92 p. Jamessuckling.com (2005)A solid wine, with blueberry and toasted oak character. Full, with polished tannins and a long finish. The center palate needs to fill in now with bottle age. But there is plenty there. Not the 2004 but seriously good for the vintage.
97 p. Wine Advocate (2004)The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is a huge, dense wine that explodes from the glass with tar, smoke, earthiness black cherries and minerals. The wine possesses dazzling concentration and tons of richness, as waves of fruit coat the palate in stunning style. This big, dramatic Brunello needs time in bottle, but it is nothing short of magnificent today. The balance, and the integration of the French oak in particular, is brilliant. For those who are curious to try a bottle now, the wine should be opened a few hours in advance as the tannins are imposing at this stage. This is a rare Brunello of superb pedigree and complexity. - Antonio Galloni
95 p. Vinous (2004)Pacenti's 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is just as gorgeous as it has always been. Silky, perfumed and super-expressive, the 2004 is at a glorious peak of expression. Layers of fruit grow in the glass as the wine continues to flesh out with air. Vivid, layered and poised, the 2004 is a terrific example of the Pacenti style at its best. - Antonio Galloni
