"Here's an exciting new wine. Franco Pacenti's mediu-weight 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Rosildo shows pretty depth with a layer of crushed stone or iron rust. That earthy note lifts to reveal a pretty inner core of wild fruit, plum and blackcurrant. That characteristic vintage signature of balsam or medicinal herb also plays a leading role in the Rosildo bouquet. Fruit comes from a 1.5-hectare vineyard with heavier clay soils at 300 meters above sea level. These are followed by well-managed accents of smoke, tar and spice. A mere 1,000 bottles were made, and this wine will be officially presented in May 2020." 94+ Robert Parker

Climate conditions: A moderate winter and a hot april anticipate in 15 days the maturation of grapes, than a cooler temperature and rain in may and june moisturize the soil. Summertime was instead hot but not so much, with a perfect temperature excursion between day and night in the first half of september that facilitate a faster maturation and a good sugar stenght of grapes, rich in acidity, colors and parfums, starting the harvest in the late september.
