Siro Pacenti “Vecchie Vigni” Brunello di Montalcino 2016

Sold Out

We have 0 in stock (Inventory is live and accurate)

Siro Pacenti started this eponymous estate in 1970 with the purchase of a five-hectare vineyard in the Canalicchio district just to the north of Montalcino.

Giancarlo insists on new oak for reasons of cleanliness: he emphatically does not want vanilla or clove flavors in his wines. The wood for his barrels is seasoned at least twenty years and barrels are given a very light toast. The Brunelli are bottled after 2 years in barrel to preserve freshness and avoid excessive oak influence (the Rosso spends 1 year in barrel).  The vines are at least 15 years old for the Rosso di Montalcino, over 25 for the Brunello Pelagrilli, and 40+ for the Vecchie Vigne.  All the fruit is harvested by hand and optically sorted.

We ship wine to most states with a $100 minimum order for shipping. We don't ship spirits nor beer.

Summer shipping advisory: Orders placed from now until the fall will be held at no charge for cooler weather unless immediate shipping is requested.

Tuscany, Italy is home to some of the world's most famous wines, including Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino. The Sangiovese grape is the star of the region, creating bold and structured wines with notes of cherry and leather. In addition to the traditional wines, Tuscany is also known for its "Super Tuscans" - modern blends that incorporate non-traditional grapes and are often made along the coast.
