Siro Pagenti Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2010 1.5L Magnum
PS is made from the grapes grown in a single vineyard planted by Siro Pacenti on the north side of Montalcino at the beginning of the Seventies. Bottled only in exceptional vintages. It is not filtered and requires long ageing. PS is well structured, elegant and potent, possessing the unique character of the land where it is born.
The Wine Advocate - "Only made in the best years, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva PS is a phenomenal achievement. The wine was produced in 2006, 2007, 2010 and will also be released in 2012 and 2015. Fruit is sourced from across a five-hectare vineyard in the northern part of the appellation, but only 1,500 bottles are made using the very best fruit. This is an incredible wine that shows a promising evolution in the glass. The bouquet is fluid and graceful with a very precise and focused delivery. Dark fruit is contrasted against pressed rose, smoked spice and crushed graphite. The finish is silky and very long. Attractive tones of savory smoked meat appear at the very end."
James Suckling - "Incredibly perfumed and vibrant with dried berries, flowers and dried strawberries. Full body, a velvety texture and an intense and rich palate. So much richness and length."
