Heiner Lobenberg über:
Brunello di Montalcino Riserva PS 2015


Lobenberg: Tief schwarze Farbe, fast tintig. Die Trauben für den PS kommen aus einer Einzelpazelle aus dem Bereich um Pelagrilli. Eine edle Herkunft. Frisch geschnittene Blumen, feine Eleganz, etwas Minze und Grafit. Die Frucht wird dominiert von Kirschen und Erdbeeren. Voller Kraft, Präzision und Balance. Fabelhaft. 98-100/100


Suckling über: Brunello di Montalcino Riserva PS

-- Suckling: The purity of fruit here is so stunning with blackberry, black-cherry, black-truffle and floral aromas, as well as orange peel. It’s full-bodied and very compact with ultra fine tannins that are copious and balanced. It goes on for such a long time. The purity and precision is something else, not to mention the length and depth. So delicious now and a joy to taste. Drink or hold. 100/100


International Wine Report über: Brunello di Montalcino Riserva PS

-- International Wine Report: Imperial and progressive showing a beautifully indomitable sensory profile and decisively intriguing. The elegance of pressed red flowers blendswith dark notes of mature black cherries, lavender, wild violets, lime trees and juniper berries. The elegance of the secondary profile comes from the beauty of orange juice and dog rose. Full bodied, the incredibly silky tannins change attack in both form and structure in the centre palate, then thickening and creating a tightness few can attain in the world of Sangiovese. The finale is enveloping and vertical, lasting on the palate for almost a minute. Better from 2023. 98/100


Falstaff über: Brunello di Montalcino Riserva PS

-- Falstaff: Glänzendes, sattes Rubin. Eröffnet mit Noten nach Rauch, dann viel dunkle Frucht, Waldhimbeere und Brombeere, etwas Lakritze im Hintergrund. Satt und stoffig in Ansatz und Verlauf, präsentiert sich mit kraftvollem Tannin, mächtige Tiefe, im Finale fester Druck, kann noch lange lagern. 97/100


Parker über: Brunello di Montalcino Riserva PS

-- Parker: Having tasted this wine in a preview capacity a few years back, it's exciting to compare my past impressions to the current ones. In the case of the Siro Pacenti 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva PS, I found that the oak signature was very strong back then and that it remains very strong, even too strong today. There's beauty here, no doubt, but the stylistic preference for 100% new oak on Sangiovese is forever controversial and debatable. I find that it no longer jibes with my palate, although from an intellectual point of view it's impossible not to is set forth by a gradually increasing grain and toast regimen with custom barrels ordered from tonnellerie Taransaud. The wine is aged in new oak for two years and racked every three months for the first year of aging. Detail-oriented farming translates into an impressive 600 to 700 hours of manual work per hectare. The wine's appearance is almost impenetrable, and the bouquet is well-integrated with black fruit, spice and balsam notes, but those tannins are just too much. This wine was not produced in 2013 or 2014, and this 2015 release counts 1,000 bottles and 200 magnums. In 2013, all the fruit went to the Brunello Vecchie Vigne instead. My big-picture takeaway is that I'd like to see more Sangiovese purity, but hats-off to the impeccable winemaking. 95/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Brunello di Montalcino Riserva PS

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The PS is the sole single vineyard bottle produced by Siro Pacenti, with only 1000 bottles and 200 magnums being produced. PS is sourced from vines planted by Siro Pacenti in the early 1970s on the northwest side of Montalcino and is only produced in the best vintages. The 2015 PS is rich and inviting, with sweet blackberry and plum fruit, licorice, and crushed lavender. The palate is full, though it has more freshness than the nose would suggest, with gripping tannins and energetic acidity to match. The warmth of the vintage is tangible, and for that reason I believe the 2016 will have some edge in the long haul for aging potential. As with the rest of the Brunello line-up, the PS spent two years in French oak of 225 liters that is noticeable but poised for a polished style. Enjoy over the next 15 years. 95/100
