*This item may have limited availability - please call ahead to have us check stock!*
Balanced, fresh and a very elegant structure.
It is produced in our vineyards, which range from 25 to 35 years old,
mostly on the north side of Montalcino.
The rich plum, cherry, leather and graphite aromas and flavors are matched by dense, mouthcoating tannins in this intense red. Balanced and long, with hints of menthol and earth. If you like beefy reds, this is for you. Best from 2023 through 2036. 1,660 cases made.
Siro Pacenti's 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Pelagrilli offers a terrific package of intensity, freshness, firmness and complexity. It delivers generously on all fronts. The bouquet peels back to reveal wild cherry, rose hip, dried herb and toasted almond. The fruit tastes less ripe here (compared to wines from the southern parts of the appellation), and you do feel that acidic pinch on the close. This wine should flesh out and grow in volume with a few more years of bottle aging.
Underbrush, menthol, star anise and plum aromas mingle with a whiff of exotic spice. The aromas carry over to the austere, firmly structured palate along with espresso, toasted oak, sour cherry and licorice. It's still tight and primary, with firm acidity and youthfully bracing close-grained tannins that grip the finish. Drink after 2025.
