Siro Pacenti Brunello di Montalcino Vecchie Vigne 2011
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Underbrush, sun-baked earth, black spice, menthol and mature dark-skinned fruit aromas jump out of the glass. The bold, full-bodied palate doles out raspberry jam, ripe Marasca cherry, ground pepper and licorice alongside firm, fine-grained tannins that provide seamless support. It's brawny and bold but the refined tannins also lend a measure of finesse.
Plum, black cherry, licorice and menthol aromas and flavors are the hallmarks of this rich yet dense red. Fresh and balanced, with fruit and spice elements on the long aftertaste. Best from 2018 through 2028. 2,000 cases made.
