PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEWS:
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.*

92 points, Decanter:

"Franco Pacenti’s vineyards extend over 10 hectares on predominantly clay soil. Up front in violet, lavender, thyme, and licorice root, it is fragrant and compelling, while succulent red plum fills the mouth and is hemmed in by dry - though not drying - tannins. There's a lot to like here." (11/18/21)

92 points, James Suckling:
"Cherry and dried-berry aromas with some orange-peel undertones. Full-bodied with round, juicy tannins; it’s very rich and delicious." (11/29/22)
