About

94+

"The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino offers a soft and fruity interpretation of this slightly cooler vintage. The bouquet is lively and bright with loads of primary fruit at its core. That fruit (and the balanced acidity) will surely be the motor to drive this wine forward during the course of its future evolution. There is a point of sourness with well managed tannins. The finish offers flavors of dried cherry, moist earth and tobacco."

94 Wine Spectator

"Whiffs of ripe cherry, licorice and truffle signal this elegant and enticing red. Light-weight yet intense, with fine balance and the structure for aging. Wild herb and mineral notes round out the flavor spectrum. Best from 2021 through 2035. 650 cases imported. — BS"

"A fresh and clean Brunello with dark berry and lemon character. Medium body, firm tannins and a crisp finish. Needs a year or two to soften. Drink in 2020."

91 Wine Enthusiast

"Intriguing aromas of garrigue, forest floor, new leather and wild berry are front and center. The focused, medium-bodied palate delivers juicy Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, orange rind and star anise framed in fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. This won't take years to come around but will still provide good midterm aging potential. Drink 2019–2025."

91 Ian Dagata - Vinous Media

"Dark red. Musky aromas of red berries, smoky spices, violet and cola. Fresh and fruity, in a forward, silky, floral style, featuring fresh red berry and potpourri flavors. The rising finish echoes the sweet spice notes and offers delightful cut and clarity."

Product Description:

"Is the red wine which constitutes the "heart" of the Talenti winery, produced with 100% Sangiovese grapes since 1981, it grows in the Winery’s best vineyards. After careful vinification the wine matures in oak barrels (26 and 18 hl) with a small percentage ageing in tonneaus of 500 l for two and a half years, followed by 12 months ageing in the bottle before being sold.

When on the shelf, the wine is ruby-red in colour with an intense, characteristic and delicate aroma, harmonious, with a hint of vanilla and red fruit, wide and warm taste. Persistent, very harmonious and tasty, with a structure and complexity which gives the wine longevity.

Ruby red and intense colour with orange shimmers. A wide bouquet slightly spicy. His taste is full, soft, velvety and intense. The tannins are elegant and sweet." - Winery
