Riccardo Talenti and his family have crafted a bold and deeply saturated wine. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Pian di Conte shows a contemporary side with soft cherry aromas followed by sweet spice and dark chocolate. It also delivers some of those tangy balsamic and licorice-like aromas that are so specific to Sangiovese from Montalcino. You get power as well as a good dose of authenticity with this age-worthy Riserva.
93 Antonio Galloni - Vinous
Deep red. Aromas of black plum, red cherry and licorice. Broad, ripe and rich; a dusty note adds complexity to the black plum and coffee flavors. Shows more texture and extract than the 2013 Brunello from this estate, but the herbal-licorice aspect makes it less easy to drink today. Finishes with substantial, broad but noble tannins. This just really needs time to develop in the bottle.
