"The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Pelagrilli impresses for its expressive, beautifully delineated aromatics, silky tannins and graceful overall harmony. Dark red fruit, flowers and spices are some of the nuances that emerge from this vibrant, taut Brunello from the northern side of Montalcino. It will be fascinating to see how this new bottling from Pacenti develops in the coming years. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026."
"Giancarlo Pacenti continues to make some of the most brilliant, textured wines in Montalcino. His 2006s are superb. The harvest started on September 25th and ended at the beginning of October. This year Pacenti has a new Brunello, Pelagrilli, made from younger vines than he uses for his top bottlings. The Pelagrilli is another step away from Pacenti's long held preference for making a single Brunello from his holdings across multiple vineyards in Montalcino. According to Pacenti, the younger vines in Pelagrilli are now old enough to be bottled separately, while the older vines are used for the top of the line PS when the quality of the vintage is high. So, in 2006 readers will find three Pacenti Brunelli; the entry-level Pelagrilli, the straight Brunello and the PS, which will be released next year. Pacenti uses vines under 20 years old for the Rosso, from ages 20-30 for the new Pelagrilli, and older than 30 for the Brunello and PS." (05/11)

"Starts out supple, with muscular tannins gathering steam midpalate to finish. Cherry, strawberry and spice flavors hold the center, as a hint of tar marks the slightly dry finish. Needs some time. Best from 2013 through 2024. 1,250 cases made. -BS" (07/11)
"100% Sangiovese that comes from 25 year old vines on the northern side of Montalcino. Hand-harvested, and rigorously selected by hand both before and after the destemming. Ages 24 months in French oak barriques." -Importer
"Giancarlo Pacenti is one of the leaders of the younger generation of innovative Montalcinesi who take inspiration and new ideas from outside of the zone and often beyond Italian borders. His two vineyards lie in two very different areas of Montalcino: one to the northeast of the town, where the wines develop full, ripe qualities; and one to the hotter southwest area near Sant'Angelo in Colle, which produces a more powerful, minerally wine. The Rosso is considered to be one of the very best, with the fruit's inherent structure delicately enhanced by a brief passage in barriques (the 2006 vintage has just received 90 points from Parker). Since the 1995 vintage, his Brunello has repeatedly won Gambero Rosso's most prestigious Tre Bicchieri (Three Glass) award in addition to 90+ scores from all the major international publications.
