International Wine CellarRating: 93/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 127, July/August 2006 ($75) Deep, bright red. Exotic aromas of raspberry liqueur, roasted coffee and mocha.

Antonio GalloniRating: 95/100 - As reviewed by Piedmont Report Lively ruby. Pacenti's mid-weight 2001 Brunello is made in a very similar style to the Rosso. It opens with a finely nuanced, fresh nose, followed by a delicate core of ripe fruit that bursts onto the palate with exceptional elegance, purity and finesse. Silky, fine tannins frame the finish of this unforgettable, profound Brunello.
Wine Spectator"Pure fruit here with lot of currant and berry. Full-bodied, with loads of fruit and velvety tannins. Long and delicious. Needs time. Best after 2009. 2,500 cases made."
