Siro Pacenti Brunello di Montalcino "Pelagrilli" 2018

Product description

Siro Pacenti bought his estate and planted his first vines in 1970, all of which still thrive today. The property is north of Montalcino, in Pelagrilli, and overlooks Siena with 22 hectares of Sangiovese in fresh, clay soils. In 1988, Giancarlo Pacenti took over operations at the winery, producing the first Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino that same year. At the beginning of the Nineties, the estate expanded to include land south of Montalcino (Piancornello) where Giancarlo’s grandfather had planted five hectares of Sangiovese in the 1960s.

Pelagrilli is characterized by clayey, sandy soils, sitting at 350 meters above sea level at the base of the Montalcino hill. The wines are elegant and aromatic. In Piancornello, the vineyards grow in more minerally and pebbly soils atop ground rock. The climate here is also hotter, resulting in more structured, potent wines with the sweet, round tannins typical of Sangiovese.

Lots of structure and true pedigree from the northern section of Montalcino. Higher tone red fruits enveloped by French oak accents of toffee and vanilla.
