TALENTI TALENTI - Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Pian del Conte - 2012

TALENTI Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Pian del Conte 2012

See the wine detail page

95 Points

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.
