About

94+

"The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino offers a soft & fruity interpretation of this slightly cooler vintage. The bouquet is lively & bright with loads of primary fruit at its core. That fruit (& 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 & tobacco".

94 Wine Spectator

"Whiffs of ripe cherry, licorice & truffle signal this elegant & enticing red. Light-weight yet intense, with fine balance & the structure for aging. Wild herb & 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
