The 2008 Rosso di Montalcino opens with promising, expressive aromatics that lead to an initial burst of fruit. The wine then loses some of its intensity on the mid-palate, revealing hard, rough tannins that are uncharacteristic. Ideally the wine is best enjoyed upon release. In its finest vintages, Pacenti's Rosso can last ten years or more. A recent bottle of the 2001 was gorgeous. Vintage 2008, however, did not give Pacenti anywhere near as much quality with which to work. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2012. -Antonio Galloni
