2016 Celestino Pecci Brunello Di Montalcino
2016 Celestino Pecci Brunello Di Montalcino There’s an inviting mentholated freshness to the bouquet of the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino that draws you in. Bright cherry, strawberry and cedar spice box can be found with further exploration. It’s silky with a refined feel to its polished red fruits, leaning more toward the savory side and gaining tactile grip through a mix of minerals and subtle tannins. Notes of spiced orange, savory herbs and inner florals build, as this finishes lightly structured and wonderfully fresh for a young Brunello. This may not be a wine for the ages, but it will provide plenty of pleasure while waiting for the more brooding Poggio al Carro to mature.
Azienda Agraria Pecci Celestino
Celestino was born in a farmhouse near S.Antimo abbey, about 5 km from Montalcino. In former times parents planned the future of their children and for him, last of 6 sons, Guido and Maddalena desired a job as office worker; it was a time when people abandoned the countryside to follow the dream of living in a town; they were the postwar years, where everything required great effort to be achieved; it was the time when Celestino decided to rewrite his history.
It was the 1968 when the Pecci Celestino farmhouse history begun, a history full of difficulties and sacrifices but surrounded by love and passion and with a happy ending…
Celestino wasn’t left alone in his journey: the whole family was at his side, in particular his wife Idria, capable to transform each harvest and each vintage into a party.
Celestino’s family is a simple one, bound to traditions and unwilling to forget its roots; for this reasons one of the vineyards is named after Maddalena, mother of Celestino, who died in 2000 but is still present in the memories of the days spent together between stornelli and youth recounts.
Today the farmhouse is still the same but Tiziana Pecci is at its lead, supported by the careful and proud look of her father Celestino, who foresees in her the same passion for their job he has.
