Rosso di Montalcino 2016, 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 2016 Rosso di Montalcino is fresh, vibrant and explosive, with tremendous energy from start to finish. Macerated dark cherry, mocha, tobacco, mint, dried flowers, licorice and spice all run through this rich, sumptuous Rosso. The darker side of Sangiovese comes through in a virile, imposing Rosso endowed with tons of structure and sheer depth. Drink it over the next handful of years. - Antonio Galloni
91+ p. Wine Advocate (2016)The 2016 Rosso di Montalcino is a bright and vibrant red wine that really pops from the glass. It exhibits a cheerful vertical lift that embraces all the senses. That buoyant bouquet is duly followed by robust cherry flavors with an impressive level of richness and concentration. This wine shows good structure and staying power. It has the budding complexity that comes so naturally to the mighty wines of Montalcino. Some 15,000 bottles were made, and you get excellent value with this bottle. - Monica Larner
17 p. JancisRobinson.com (2015)Already some development with notes of undergrowth on the nose. Succulent cherry fruit on the palate. Long and elegant, and will deliver lots of pleasure in the next two years or so, while developing fast - Walter Speller
91 p. Vinous (2014)The 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
