2015 Siro Pacenti Brunello di Montalcino Pelagrilli

$49.99
2015 Siro Pacenti Brunello di Montalcino Pelagrilli
This is a fantastic Brunello; we just opened this a few hours ago, and it was singing from the first drop. While still a young bottle, this has excellent potential, and in the glass, it evolves by the minute. There is a bit of youthful bacon fat on the nose that quickly blows off as it reveals notes of burnt cherry, blood orange, and wild herbs, developing a lovely rose petal perfume and some underlying soil tones as time goes on. The palate has excellent focus and an outstanding balance between richness and acidity here with quite a bit of intensity and a long delicious finish. Most will prefer this over the old vine bottling, which is more modern in profile as it sees much more new oak. This is one of the best Brunello's we have tasted in the past few months and is worth a look and a big pay off if cellar-ed for a few years.

Wine Advocate (Monica Larner) 95 points! "The Siro Pacenti 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Pelagrilli is a rich and pleasing wine with very nice aromatics. Of these two new releases, the Pelagrilli is more characteristic of Tuscany and Sangiovese. The Vecchie Vigne expression tastes far more international or contemporary (read: it has more oak flavors) in comparison. I tend to prefer this wine especially in a vintage like 2015 that is so naturally expressive and powerful to begin with. The bouquet opens to dried cherry with dusty mineral notes and dried Mediterranean herb. On the the finish, you taste some of that sweetness that comes with aging in French barrique. Some 23,000 bottles were released in January 2020."
