I can't believe how the nose changes from white truffle to berry and black cherry and then goes blueberries and citrus fruits. Full and soft and velvety. It is layered and massive with so much going on. Now sweet tobacco... I can't believe how the nose changes from white truffle to berry and black cherry and then goes blueberries and citrus fruits. Full and soft and velvety. It is layered and massive with so much going on. Now sweet tobacco and berries. A wine that is in evolution every moment. Try it in 2014.

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino saturates the palate with deep layers of dark red fruit violets new leather and spices. The aromas and flavors grow beautifully with air showing remarkable intensity all the way through to the expansive textured finish. This is a brilliant effort from Giancarlo Pacenti. The Brunello saw 18-20 days on the skins followed by malolactic fermentation and aging in French oak barrels of which roughly 80% were new. The vineyard sources are approximately 4.5 hectares in Sant'Angelo and Piancornello (in the south of Montalcino) and 5 hectares in Pelagrilli (in the north). Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.

An iron streak runs through the middle of this firmly structured Brunello leading to core flavors of black cherry tobacco and wild herbs. This stays taut and racy through the finish but needs time to soften its tannins...

This stays taut and racy through the finish but needs time to soften its tannins. Best from 2013 through 2025. From Italy.-B.S.

Aged in approximately 80% new French oak the grapes are sourced from three different subregions in Montalcino.

Aged in approximately 80% new French oak the grapes are sourced from three different subregions in Montalcino. Dark cherry violet saddle leather and mushroom present themselves on a beautifully expansive nose.  The aromas lure you in suggesting a wine of uncommon intensity.  Exquisitely textured the fruit is bright and layered on the palate and carries through a long luscious finish.  This is made in a more modern style and has an overall impression of elegance.
