    Talenti's Rosso di Montalcino is produced from their younger vines Sangiovese. It's soft and approachable with lifted scents of mixed cherries and plums along with red fruit flavors that complement the wine's bright acidity. Try this with mild cheeses and lighter fare.

    2015 Vintage is sensational and this offering from Talenti is too! Pierluigi Talenti has made some of the greatest wines of the much-heralded 2015 vintage. The Rosso is big, fat, and rich. No new oak, but the ripe, intense fruit shines brilliantly without being masked by wood.

    A wonderful example of everything I wished Rosso was today. Does that make sense? Anyway, we've been drinking so much of these unusual 2010s that you kind of forget the normal parameters for Montalcino. Now having come back to a traditional producer like Talenti in a top tier vintage albeit a hot one, we get reminded what Montalcino is really about, gorgeous expressions of Sangiovese in it's truest form. While this one isn't ultra funky, it does have a lot of the earthy depth you'd expect from an traditional producer, fresh tobacco, tilled earth etc. The palate, however, has tons of juicy red fruit and lovely acid. It's fun to love Sangiovese and this wine makes it easy for you.

    The nose of this wine is so pure, so clean and so classically Sangiovese it thrills me. Talenti’s position on Montalcino’s western slope allows for a slightly riper profile but its elevation adds intrigue and focus. Lots of fresh plum, herb, and spice and glove leather flow from you glass in a gentle beckoning manner, never bold but always compelling. On the palate the supple, smoothness is the first thing you notice, the structure there is but it never protrudes as obvious, as the lithe wine glides across your palate it’s a more savory plum flavor that you notice, less fruity, more complex, more background earth and herb. The finish is long, balanced and seems to wander across the back of your tongue rather than forcefully play itself out. This wine will age well for the next 8-10 years; I like this wine with a slightly more delicate accompaniment, no wild boar for this, rabbit, or veal with some fresh pappardelle!
    Drink from 2017 to 2025
