91+ points - Robert Parker Wine Advocate This is Giancarlo Pacenti's more accessible Brunello with fruit sourced from younger vines that are 30 to 35 years old. The 2014 Brunello di Montalcino Pelagrilli (with 20,000 bottles made) is a mid-weight effort with a bouquet that spans a wide breadth with dark fruit notes followed by spice, tobacco and camphor ash. Those aromas are layered and pleasantly complex. The house style always prizes precision, fruit ripeness and well-managed tannins. All of those qualities apply here. 92 points - James Suckling Very pretty black-cherry and fresh-mushroom character on the nose. Medium-bodied with integrated, polished and chewy tannins. Flavorful finish. Slightly austere at the end, but still very attractive.
