Brunello di montalcino 2015
DENOMINAZIONE DI ORIGINE CONTROLLATA E GARANTITA
Tasting Notes:"The Franco Pacenti 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is another classic expression from a vintage that I found to be surprisingly homogenous across the appellation. Perhaps this wine is a bit more tempered and cooler in terms of its aromatic offerings, insisting instead on delicate floral and wild berry aromas. It shows pretty points of sharpness and detail that you don't normally find in a vintage that was as evenly warm and sunny like 2015. Despite its more timid demeanor, this Brunello shows a beautiful capacity to grow in intensity the longer it opens in the glass. Be patient and give it time. Some 24,000 bottles were released in January 2020.
This is a big year for Franco Pacenti. The estate is releasing a new wine, the 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Rosildo, that will hit the market in May of this year. That's why I have not listed a price for it yet. It is named after the founder of the estate—Franco Pacenti's father, Rosildo. By the way, the estate's official name is Franco Pacenti (and no longer Franco Pacenti Canalicchio, as I have listed it in the past)>".
