Brunello di Montalcino Riserva, Siro Pacenti 2016

Tasting Notes

This is a wine of impressive magnitude and depth. The Siro Pacenti 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva PS is modern, bold, powerful and built like a brick wall. It delivers ample concentration and texture richness, but it also boasts a pretty dark ruby color that is quite beautiful in the glass. This is a healthy, vibrant wine with plenty of aromatic character. There are fruit and oak tannins (both firmly in place to guide the wine over long cellar aging), and it sits squarely over the palate, imparting creaminess and structure. Give it ample time to soften and unfold. With time (I came back to the bottle 24 and 48 hours after opening it), it shows delicate hues of mountain herb, mint and violets. Made in limited numbers, there are only 650 bottles of this vintage plus some larger formats. 2024-2050
