Siro Pacenti Brunello di Montalcino Pelagrilli 2010
|Appellation||Brunello di Montalcino|
James SucklingAromas of dark berry, stone, dried Chinese mushroom and flowers. This is full-bodied, with layers of ripe, intense fruit and a long, long finish. Massive. Needs time to soften. Try in 2018.
VinousThe 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Pelagrilli is one of the more open, resonant wines readers will come across. Dark cherry, plum, smoke, spice and new leather blossom as this rich, textured Brunello shows off its considerable personality. The flavors are dark, bold and voluptuous throughout, but supported by persistent veins of salinity. This is a fabulous wine from Giancarlo Pacenti. Although the 2010 is labeled 'Pelagrilli' 20% of the fruit comes from Pacenti's holdings in the Piancornello district, in the south of Montalcino.
Wine SpectatorShows both finesse and muscle, with cherry, tobacco and earth flavors gaining support from the grainy tannins. Dense and concentrated, with a long, dusty finish. Best from 2019 through 2031. 1,250 cases made.
