Siro Pacenti Brunello di Montalcino Vecchie Vigne 2013
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Forest floor, toasted oak, dark spice, new leather and tobacco aromas fill the glass along with a whiff of eucalyptus. The firmly structured concentrated palate shows power and finesse, offering dried black cherry, star anise, coffee bean and grilled sage alongside fresh acidity and close-grained tannins. It's still youthfully austere and will benefit with several more years spent in the cellar. Drink 2023-2033.
Bright and bursting with cherry, currant and berry flavors, this also has a tannic edge, along with tobacco and leafy underbrush notes. The two camps need to reach some sort of dÃÂ©tente before this really sings. Best from 2022 through 2035. 2,250 cases made.
