    Wine Advocate Notes
    94+ Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: " \nThe Talenti 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is a balanced and symmetrical wine with bright red cherry on the one hand and pretty spice and balsam herb on the other. The wine pours from the bottle with dark color saturation and ruby highlights. It shows no signs of fading, and that bright color intensity is a common thread in this vintage. There is a good amount of Sangiovese acidity that reinforces the lifted and buoyant style achieved here. It ages in both tonneau and botte for 30 months. " 11/20
    Vinous Media
    94 Points, Eric Guido, Vinous: "The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino boasts a striking display of balsamic-tinged cherry and autumnal spice with a twist of sour citrus really appealing to the senses. It’s silky and pliant with a gorgeous display of ripe red and hints of black fruit. There’s a sweet and sour element here that I find quite attractive, as the 2016 gains a tactile feel toward the close through a mix of brisk acids and rounded tannins. The length and classic structure on the finish completes the expression, leaving dark florals and mineral earth tones. Talenti remains one of the best values in age-worthy Brunello in the market. That said, it’s also worth checking in on a bottle early to enjoy all of its primary intensity." 11/20
    James Suckling Notes
    93 Points, James Suckling: "A pretty and solid 2016 Brunello with cherry, orange-peel and walnut aromas and flavors. It’s medium-to full-bodied with chewy tannins and a walnut and berry aftertaste. Give it two or three years to soften and come together. Try after 2022."
    Wine Spectator Notes
    95 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: "This is supple and round, evoking macerated cherry, plum and licorice flavors, framed by accents of iron, tea and wild herbs. Solidly built, with a dense matrix of tannins enforcing the finish. Shows fine overall balance. Best from 2025 through 2045. " 03/21
    Wine Enthusiast Notes
    97 points, Kerin O’Keefe, Wine Enthusiast: “Focused and loaded with finesse, this opens with enticing aromas of menthol, graphite, rose and forest floor. Full bodied and delicious, the linear, energized palate features ripe Marasca cherry, licorice, mint and vanilla before a coffee-bean finish. Firm, polished tannins and fresh acidity provide support. Drink 2024–2036. Editors’ Choice.” 03/21
    International Wine Reviews Notes
    96 Points, Raffaele Vecchione, International Wine Review: "The noble profile of this Brunello shows a lot of energy made in the notes of raspberry, currant, pomegranate, peel \nlemon, and sage. In the background, a memory of wet earth and chocolate gives character to the matrix. Medium to full body, gentle tannins, and a round and harmonious finish. Muscular and compact, it gives beauty right away. Better from 2022."
    97+ Points, Luca Gardini, Gardini Notes: Beautiful nuances perceived in this Brunello. On the nose, pleasant officinal \ntones from fresh bay leaf, small dark fruits, a nice closing on the tones of caper. The mouth is both juicy and taut. Officinal return on the finish."
