"Well-delineated black cherry and black currant flavors are matched to graphite, earth and wild herb accents in this powerful red. Balanced in a broad-shouldered way, this leaves a vibrant impression on the lingering finish. Best from 2023 through 2042. 2,700 cases made, 380 cases imported. -BS" (WS)

"A powerful and meaningful expression of Sangiovese, the 2015 Brunello di Montalcino opens to dark and savory notes with blackberry and black current, showing some added extraction and richness in this beautiful vintage. The wine seems to build intensity and bandwidth within a relatively short time after being poured from the bottle. Ultimately, it offers an open and generous style that drinks well straight out of the gate, if you simply don't want to wait. Some 32,000 bottles were made.

The Talenti team is introducing a new Brunello called Piero that is dedicated to the estate patriarch. This wine represents a special selection of fruit from a single-vineyard parcel." (WA)

"Bright vibrant red-ruby. Inviting aromas of red plum, mocha, redcurrant jam, tobacco, and gently smoky herbs. Bright, silky and suave, with mellow flavors of redcurrant, red plum, tobacco and mocha. Multilayered and extremely stylish wine, finishing with polished tannins, outstanding balance and subtle persistence. So well-balanced in fact, this gorgeous Brunello is almost deceptively easy to drink and can practically be accessed even now. Very well done." (VM)

"There’s freshness galore here i,n the form of orange zest and citrus peel. But this Brunello isn’t short on power either; red licorice, cardamom and dried hibiscus pepper the nose. To support the ripe fruit are layers of sinewy tannins and gliding acidity, making for an altogether sophisticated and edgy impression. Refined and elegant on the long finish. Drink from 2023." (JS)

"Editors' Choice, Rose petal, crushed mint, woodland berry and eucalyptus aromas slowly take shape on this delicious full bodied red. It's linear and elegantly structured, featuring juicy Marasca cherry, cranberry, licorice and cocoa alongside firm velvety tannins. It closes on an orange-zest note. Drink 2023–2035. Kerin O’Keefe" (WE)

"Talenti's Brunello is assembled from five different vineyards between Sant'Angelo in Colle and Castelnuovo dell'Abate. With varying soils, they also range in altitude from 250 to 400 metres. The lower sites develop higher alcohol and sweeter, riper fruit whereas the higher plots impart more acidity and fresh fruit. This is a delectable panoramic of 2015, bursting with evocative scents of chopped herbs, orange oil and forest berries. On the palate strawberry and raspberry are delicately laced with vanilla. Bright, juicy acidity keeps this light on its feet, while powdery tannins cleanse the mouth. Absolutely moreish, and for value for money, this is a must-buy." (Decanter)
