The wine has a deep red colour and a fresh, complex bouquet rich in scents of ripe red fruit, plums, cherry, blackberry and raspberry, accompanied by spicy scents that develop with age, such as chocolate, tobacco and liquorice. The mouth features a potent, toned body with a good balance and smoothness, with sweet and elegant tannins in the finish.

Superb pairing with red meats, game, meat sauce and wild boar. 

Talenti Description

A selection of 100% sangiovese, grown in the oldest vineyards that surround the estate (400 m MSL), is only used in exceptional vintages to create Riserva Pian di Conte. The south-easterly exposed soils are made up of sandy loam and plenty of heavy stone. The wine ages in 500-litre French oak tonneaux and 15/25-Hl Slavonian oak barrels for at least 24 months, followed by a period of bottle ageing. 

Wine Advocate: 94 Points

The Talenti 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Pian di Conte is a classic, stately wine with lots of dark fruit, dried blackberry, spice, tobacco and balsam herb. The wine registers 15% alcohol, which puts a lot of extra muscle mass on these otherwise elegant fruit tones, thus subtracting from some of the grace of the vintage. Production sees 6,600 bottles and some larger formats as well. Anticipated Maturity: 2024-2040

Wine Enthusiast: 92 Points

Camphor, French oak, underbrush and blue flower aromas shape the nose along with leather notes. Bold and brawny, the enveloping, concentrated palate features mature plum, spiced blueberry, licorice and espresso set against close-grained, velvety tannins. Drink 2024–2029. -K.O.
