Cellar for up to 20 years. No need to decant before serving.

Located near the stunning medieval town of Siena, Siro Pacenti is a classic Tuscan wine estate of gorgeous rolling hills and historic vineyards. The winery was founded by Siro Pacenti in 1970 after he purchased a five-hectare vineyard just to the north of Montalcino. The estate now has some 60 hectares of land planted to vines, olive trees, and cereals, including some land to the south of Montalcino which was planted by Siro’s father in the 1960s.

Siro’s son Giancarlo has been running the estate since 1988, and has cemented the winery’s reputation as one of Montalcino’s finest by focusing on exceptional quality fruit, biodynamic agriculture, and state-of-the-art winemaking equipment. This is his old vine Brunello sourced from 35 year old vineyards and aged in French oak barrels for 24 months followed by another 12-24 months of bottle ageing.

Siro Pacenti’s wines are frequently described as pure and elegant, and this cuvee is no exception with luscious dark fruit complemented by robust tannins and a generous full body. Hints of cassis, dark berry and plum dominate on the nose, along with undertones of forest floor, baked earth, and cigar box spice from the lengthy barrel ageing. A great addition to the cellar, although it can also be approached now alongside hearty dishes like venison, a ribeye steak, or a rack of ribs.
