Talenti Brunello di Montalcino!
I had the pleasure of meeting Riccardo Talenti and tasting his newly released Brunellos at Benvenuto Brunello 2013.
Besides being very charming and approachable (I’m talking about Riccardo!), I was very impressed with the new Talenti Brunello releases.
Here’s the skinny:
Talenti Brunello 2008 – Not a lot on the nose, but it was the beginning of the day and the bottle had just been opened. In the mouth there was red fruits, hints of orange and definite cocoa powder. The fruit is bright enough on this one that it will be tasting really nice in a few years.
Talenti Brunello Riserva 2007 – Wonderful nose of sweet spice. EXTREMELY drinkable. Big tanins with persistent red fruit with a touch of clove. Nice now, still, if you can wait, will drink amazingly for years.
Grazie Ricardo e complimenti!!!!
