2004 Siro Pacenti Brunello di Montalcino

Sangiovese more

7/9/2015 - Stevey wrote: 93 points

Allowed 48 hours to settle and "warm" to ~18C from 13C cellar, then popped and poured at restaurant into decanter. Complex berry, cherry flavors, earthy, musty. Good structure, good balance excellent length, tannic finish. Needs more time.

Wine needed 2-3 hours air time to open up. I'd say this is at beginning of drinking window but still a few years away from peak. If you have some in your cellar, hold for a few more years and this will be a gem.

PnP at The Bistro at Biltmore Estate. Initially, tannins overshadowed fruit. Opened up after about half hour. Maybe this will get better but seemed unbalanced.

Medium intensity color, animal, young and very tannic...just to young at this stage, but should age nicely.

Very young, but very good balance, lovely and quite fruity with dried cherry and cherry pie, hint of cinnamon, dried herbs, smoke; smooth entry, supple tannins, moderate + acid. Should be great with some age.

Coravin taste-off: 2010 Brunellos: Very nice nose, with red fruit and earth and a balsamic note. On the palate this is medium bodied, with nice fruit and savory notes including balsamic again. Some tannic grip at the end, but not drinking badly even at this very young stage. This should develop nicely, but it is just a bit disjointed at this stage. If this all comes together and smooths out, it will be excellent.

8/10 - Refer to prior note. Quite a bit of sediments in this bottle. Still quite strong on the alcohol but good overall.

Drank my last bottle of 2001 tonight and immediately order 6 bottles of the 2010 for delivery in the fall. This is a very good Brunello with nice tannins, great cherries in the back with mushrooms...good acidity. I met Siro Pacenti in a restaurant in San Angelo en Colle...what a gentleman!

VinItaly Day 4 (Verona, Italy): 30-50 year old vines; see through crimson core with orange rim; high toned, floral, crushed rose, dried red fruit, strong orange peel; palate is a bit less intense than nose, tannin comes out; needs time to come together.

VinItaly Day 4 (Verona, Italy): Crimson with orange hues in rim; rose, red cherry, oak, perfumed, a bit awkward; structure sneaks up on you as the tannins build on the palate; good.

Funky mature nose of smoky licorice, sweet prunes, black fruits and minerals. Sweet and mature with flavors of charred earth, black cherry, menthol and prunes. The finish is still a bit tannic with nice complexity on the finish with notes of smoke, coffee and minerals. Delicious but a bit sweet now for my palate.

Austere and too young for drinking now. Full bodied, with tastes of leather, tar, cocoa, and a hint of earth, and a subtle something herbal lurking in the background. Tons of potential are rapped up in a dense, drying wine with big tannins that need to resolve.

Young, lovely, and open for business. Pleasantly surprised with the silky-smooth mouthfeel during the mid palate. Firm acidity on the back end led to a nice 40-second finish. Great with food. If this is any indication of 2010 Brunellos, wow!

Stored at 55 degrees, humidity controlled, since release.
Threw a huge amount of sediment upon decanting. Dense brackish color.
After half an hour, was quite impressive. Fruit still holding up well, but probably should be drunk fairly soon. Big, brawny, rich, but balanced, brunello. Would go with a steak -- a brunello in cabernet clothing.
24 hours later (gassed overnight). Really impressive. Silky, smooth, rich, dense, and gorgeous. I cannot think of a 20+ year old brunello I have had that is better.

Cherry/ruby colour. Aromas of cherries, florals and some orange peel. Medium to light bodied. Medium acidity. Some nice overall freshness to the wine although it does seem a little thinner then the previous bottle. Drying dusty tannins. Flavours of slight sour cherry, leather. Smooth and elegant at this stage.

Only a faint nose of cherry, the wine is more expressed on the pallette. Beautifullly silky red cherry fruit is mixed with some spice and Tuscan earthy/mineral notes, this is an elegant medium bodied wine. The fruit lingers so soft on the tongue and the acidity makes the wine feel light on its feet. Mature, if not a bit past peak, the wine was nonetheless a pleasure to consume, so easy to drink. Drink now as the fruit was a bit more faded since last bottle.

1st of 12, decanted an hour - dark and dense; classic black cherry and plum, if a bit monolithic; bit of a bruiser, full, long, chewy, initially impressive in an unnuanced way but quite tiring on the palate......we'll see. Not complex enough for better than very good indeed (17/20).

Not as bad as advertised on the site. Yes I had the same experience as most - white sludge that I filtered out, hot off the pop and high in acid but it calmed after a 3 hour decant. Ok it was a bit thin but paired well with a pasta and quite elegant in doing so
