James Suckling 95 - 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.
Wine Advocate 91 - 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.
Vinous 91 - Bright, full red-ruby. Nuanced, scented nose combines raspberry, blackcurrant, tobacco, and an intense flinty note. Suave, juicy and complex, with harmonious acidity giving shape and freshness to the plum and mocha flavors. This subtle midweight finishes with smooth tannins, very god balance and lingering perfume. A big success for Talenti.
Ruby red and intense color with orange shimmers. A wide bouquet, 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.
