Identified by the Wine Spectator as 'the best winemaker in the appellation of Brunello di Montalcino', Giancarlo Pacenti took over running his family's 60 hectare estate in 1988. His wines are renowned for their combination of richness and structure. They somehow remain remarkably fresh, pure, and elegant, despite being aged in French oak barriques rather than the large Slovenian oak botti many producers choose in the pursuit of freshness, purity and elegance. The total estate includes 20...
Vines aged between 15 and 25 years, farmed with sustainable agricultural practices.
Grapes were harvested exclusively by hand and sorted manually before and after destemming. Fermented at a controlled temperature in stainless steel, then aged in 225-litre French oak barrels for 12 months prior to bottling.

Antonio Galloni, October 2019
Leave it to Giancarlo Pacenti to make one of the most polished Rossos of 2017. Sleek and racy, with tons of persistence, the 2017 is super-expressive today. Dark cherry, spice, menthol, licorice and espresso all run through this mid-weight, striking Rosso. All the elements are impeccably balanced, in a pliant, racy Rosso that delivers the goods. This is such a delicious wine.See detailed press review

The 2017 Rosso di Montalcino reveals medium to dark color saturation with bright primary aromas. The wine tastes like you are biting into a black summer cherry or eating a handful of sweet blackberries. This entry-level wine from Siro Pacenti delivers exactly what you should expect at this attractive price point. There is ample fruit intensity with just enough structure and acidity to pair with your favorite home cooked dinners.See detailed press review
