Franco Pacenti is located in the village of Canalicchio, just northwest of the historic town of Montalcino. The patriarch of the Pacenti family, Rosildo established the winery in the 1970s; since the late 1980s it has been in the hands of his son Franco & his 3 children Lisa, Serena, and Lorenzo.*
The estate is 36 hectares in total, with 10 hectares planted to Sangiovese Grosso. The vineyards, planted between 1980-2002, are divided into 6 parcels. They have a northeast exposure, sit at an average altitude of 300 meters, and have soils rich in clay.*
The Brunello here is vinified in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks with extended maceration on the skins, then aged in medium-to-large Slovenian oak casks as well as French oak barrels.*

93 points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Juicy and delicious, this opens with inviting aromas of fragrant purple flower, ripe wild berry, underbrush and a whiff of camphor. On the savory palate, notes of licorice, blood orange and coffee bean accent a core of morello cherry. Taut, fine-grained tannins provide support. Drink 2024–2029." (5/1/21)
