Winemaker Notes

Ruby red and intense color with orange shimmers. A widebouquet, slightly spicy. The taste is full, soft, velvety and intense.The tannins are elegant and sweet.

This wine is particularly suited to accompany red meat, game, cold meat and aged-cheese.

James Suckling
The plum-fruit character with salted almonds here is fascinating. Full body, and this really grows on the palate, showing a powerful depth of fruit and wonderful length. Drink in 2020.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino offers delicate tones and crisp lines that set it apart. Dark fruit is followed by dried cherry, pressed flowers and mild spice. The wine shows very nice balance and impressive length. The finish is polished and bright with balanced acidity that makes a good contrast to the depth and power for which Brunello is known. The wine is aged in botte grande and tonneaux for 30 months.

Talenti, Italy
The Winery was established in 1980, when Pierluigi Talenti decided to buy the fascinating property and grounds with which he had fallen in love in the Fifties, when he had decided to leave the mountains of his native Romagna for the sweet and sunny hills of Montalcino.

Experience and thorough research on clones in the whole area of Montalcino, combined with a healthy respect for tradition, allowed the Winery to reach the high levels of quality in enjoys today. Since 1999 the Winery is direct from Talenti family, in the person of his grandson Riccardo Talenti, who, matching tradition to the continuous research of new technologies, continues the work with same dedication and passion of the past years.

Situated in the South area of Montalcino, not far from the small medieval borough of S. Angelo in Colle, stands Pian di Conte, a beautiful building of antique origins, which looks on the gentle valley of the river Orcia and is the seat of the Talenti winery.

Montalcino Wine

Tuscany, Italy

View all products

Famous for its bold, layered and long-lived red, Brunello di Montalcino, the town of Montalcino is about 70 miles south of Florence, and has a warmer and drier climate than that of its neighbor, Chianti. The Sangiovese grape is king here, as it is in Chianti, but Montalcino has its own clone called Brunello.

The Brunello vineyards of Montalcino blanket the rolling hills surrounding the village and fan out at various elevations, creating the potential for Brunello wines expressing different styles. From the valleys, where deeper deposits of clay are found, come wines typically bolder, more concentrated and rich in opulent black fruit. The hillside vineyards produce wines more concentrated in red fruits and floral aromas; these sites reach up to over 1,600 feet and have shallow soils of rocks and shale.

Brunello di Montalcino by law must be aged a minimum of four years, including two years in barrel before realease and once released, typically needs more time in bottle for its drinking potential to be fully reached. The good news is that Montalcino makes a “baby brother” version. The wines called Rosso di Montalcino are often made from younger vines, aged for about a year before release, offer extraordinary values and are ready to drink young.

Among Italy's elite red grape varieties, Sangiovese has the perfect intersection of bright red fruit and savory earthiness and is responsible for the best red wines of Tuscany. While it is best known as the chief component of Chianti, it is also the main grape in Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and reaches the height of its power and intensity in the complex, long-lived Brunello di Montalcino. Somm Secret—Sangiovese doubles under the alias, Nielluccio, on the French island of Corsica where it produces distinctly floral and refreshing reds and rosés.
