Siro Pacenti Brunello di Montalcino Pellagrilli 2014

James Suckling: 92pts

Very pretty black-cherry and fresh-mushroom character on the nose. Medium-bodied with integrated, polished and chewy tannins. Flavorful finish. Slightly austere at the end, but still very attractive. Drink or hold.

Wine Advocate: 91+pts

This is Giancarlo Pacenti's more accessible Brunello with fruit sourced from younger vines that are 30 to 35 years old. The 2014 Brunello di Montalcino Pelagrilli (with 20,000 bottles made) is a mid-weight effort with a bouquet that spans a wide breadth with dark fruit notes followed by spice, tobacco and camphor ash. Those aromas are layered and pleasantly complex. This is a more immediate vintage overall to drink within the next 10 years or so. The house style always prizes precision, fruit ripeness and well-managed tannins. All of those qualities apply here.

Wine Spectator: 91pts

This red shows complexity and depth to the plum, cherry, almond, graphite and tobacco flavors. Offers good grip and fine balance overall. Firms up on the finish, but lingers nicely. Best from 2020 through 2032. 1,750 cases made, 515 cases imported. — BS
