Rosso di Montalcino 2014, Siro Pacenti
Rosso di Montalcino 2014, Siro Pacenti
Lavet på 100 % Sangiovese Grosso fra marker med yngre vinstokke i både det nordlige og det sydlige Montalcino. Druerne er høstet i hånden og grundig sorteret inden afstilkning. Modnet 12 måneder på franske barriques - heraf ca 1/3 nye.
Meget intens duft af røde kirsebær med masser af florale noter samt sødmefuld røg og vanilie fra fadet. Tæt og saftig i smagen med tørre tanniner og en meget lang eftersmag.
Flot til vildt eller kødretter med intens sauce.
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
AnmeldelserThe 2014 Rosso di Montalcino is one of the better Rossos of the vintage. Dark, pliant and expressive, the 2014 offers notable depth, with plenty of dark red cherry, plum, mocha and spice notes. This is a commendable effort from Giancarlo Pacenti, and one of the rare overachievers of the vintage. In 2014, Pacenti declassified a significant portion of his Brunello down to the Rosso, and that was after losing 50% of the total crop to bad weather. - Antonio Galloni
89+ p. Wine Advocate (2014)The 2014 Rosso di Montalcino is much more than your standard Rosso. Ironically, this wine has benefit from the difficult vintage because fruit that was earmarked for Brunello was put here instead. The wine opens to a dark and richly saturated color and good aromatic intensity. The bouquet shows elements of black cherry, spice and tobacco. The wine is smooth and silky in texture. If you are looking for value from Montalcino, this wine delivers it in spades. - Monica Larner
93 p. Jamessuckling.com (2013)A solid red with dried cherry, strawberry and lemon aromas and flavors. Full and rich. This is the best Rosso di Montalcino out there. Wonderful length and finesse.
90 p. Vinous (2013)The 2013 Rosso di Montalcino is fresh, floral and lifted, which is to say very much in the style of this late-ripening vintage. Sweet tobacco, mint, leather, smoke and dark red stone fruits open up nicely in the glass. Although not quite as voluptuous as most editions, the 2013 has lovely energy and enough acidity to drink well for a number of years. This is a very pretty Rosso from Giancarlo Pacenti. - Antonio Galloni
90 p. Wine Advocate (2013)Showing a slightly more evolved style and a pinch of extra complexity, the 2013 Rosso di Montalcino is a standout wine for its category. Giancarlo Pacenti has done a terrific job with this Rosso. It shows dark fruit intensity with background tones of spice and leather. There is also a pretty mineral note that distinguishes this food-friendly Tuscan wine. Like the 2014 vintage, this wine drinks like more than a base red. Its taste profile puts it somewhere between a Rosso and a Brunello on the Montalcino spectrum. - Monica Larner
92 p. Jamessuckling.com (2012)Fresh raisin with mountain soil on nose. Structured with dry tannin, riped red fruits, coffee beans with balsamic character. Truly outstanding Rosso di Montalcino.
91 p. Vinous (2012)The 2012 Rosso di Montalcino jumps from the glass with sweet red cherries, cinnamon, flowers and mint. Juicy, supple and wonderfully vibrant, the 2012 impresses for its balance and harmony. Hints of sage, tobacco and rosemary linger on the close. I tasted the 2012 in tank, just prior to bottling. - Antonio Galloni
16,5+ p. JancisRobinson.com (2012)Very delicious red fruit upfront, and a touch of floral aroma. Firm tannins on the palate, but very drinkable even now. The balance is a great example of what Sangiovese does best – all that tannin, but cleansing acid too. - Richard Hemming MW
90 p. Vinous & Wine Advocate (2006)Pacenti's 2006 Rosso di Montalcino is a sleek, lush wine loaded with soft-textured fruit that flows onto the palate with remarkable elegance and finesse. With air it gains weight and expansiveness in a gorgeous display of Rosso. As is often the case, Giancarlo Pacenti's Rosso di Montalcino is among the finest wines of the region, although in this vintage he has more competition, which suggests producers are paying more attention to the quality of their Rossos. - Antonio Galloni
16,5 p. JancisRobinson.com (2006)Some of the glamour of Brunello for half the price. And you could enjoy this already. Well judged, though still pretty chewy. - Jancis Robinson MW
