2011 Talenti Trentennale Brunello di Montalcino
A delicious, fruity wine with blueberry and hints of walnut. Medium to full body with silky tannins. Starts off slowly, then delivers beautiful dried berries, spice and minerals. Drink now.
Rated 94/100 James Suckling
The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Trentennale is a delicate and graceful wine with a dusty veil of dried fruit aromas, followed by pressed violets and rose petal. Red currant, wild berry and forest floor emerge from the bouquet and are soon followed by toasted almond, spice and even a touch of wild mushroom. This wine (that celebrates a 30th anniversary this year) does not meet the impressive levels seen in 2010. Yet the wine presents a very faithful interpretation of Sangiovese, nonetheless.
