About Siro Pacenti

A Montalcino estate that was founded in 1970 by Siro Pacenti which 1988 has been bottling and labelling up its own wines. The estate is situated on the north side of Montalcino, at Pelagrilli. There are 20ha of vines situated at Pelagrilli and also on the south side of Montalcino at Piano. The altitude ranges from 330 to 150 metres above sea level. The Brunello is aged for 24 months in a third new oak all barriques followed by 18 months in bottle. Only the Sangiovese grapeis used an all bunches are de-stalked before fermentation. Siro Pacentis Brunellos are beautifully measured, refined and balanced with a subtle modern twist, they offer traditional Brunello power yet offer a good degree of restraint and poise.

Appellation: Tuscany

Tuscany (or Toscana) is a large region made up of many significant smaller areas that are known across the world for the level of quality that they produce. Brunello di Montalcino, Bolgheri and Chianti can both be found here as well as the infamous "Super Tuscans".

Grape Type: Sangiovese

Meaning Blood of Jove, or Jupiter, Sangiovese is the noble grape of Chianti, Carmignano, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile de Montpulciano. A fussy grape to grow, but when done properly can produce some of the world’s most enthralling red wines. It can produce lively, sappy young reds with juicy, cherry flavours, as well as more concentrated, long-lived, oak-matured reds with superb, savoury, herb and spice flavours. Quality has soared over the last year as productive clones have been grubbed up and since the old practices of blending it with weak, lean white grape varieties have died down.
