2015 Brunello di Montalcino, Pelagrilli, Siro Pacenti (6 x Bottle)

Italy Tuscany

The Siro Pacenti 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Pelagrilli is a rich and pleasing wine with very nice aromatics. Of these two new releases, the Pelagrilli is more characteristic of Tuscany and Sangiovese. The Vecchie Vigne expression tastes far more international or contemporary (read: it has more oak flavors) in comparison. I tend to prefer this wine especially in a vintage like 2015 that is so naturally expressive and powerful to begin with. The bouquet opens to dried cherry with dusty mineral notes and dried Mediterranean herb. On the the finish, you taste some of that sweetness that comes with aging in French barrique. Some 23,000 bottles were released in January 2020.

Vinous

Dark earth tones and dusty florals come together in the 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Pelagrilli, along with red woodland berries and a hint of animal muskiness, creating a savory and enticing display. On the palate, soft textures host an array of red and black fruits, with building minerals and tannins which quickly firm up the experience, yet this remains remarkably fresh. The finish is long and slightly tart, as grippy tannins clench the senses, with hints of savory spice and red berries lingering on.
