2019 Talenti Rosso di Montalcino

Tuscany, Italy

A vibrant, floral, and lighter-bodied Tuscan Sangiovese from a legendary Brunello producer.



About The Wine

When you think of Tuscan wine, you think automatically of Sangiovese, the grape that is common to most great Tuscan reds, and the true star of the region. Dig a little deeper, and Montalcino comes to the fore, as one of the most complex and age-worthy Sangiovese wines produced there.

The Talenti Rosso is emblematic of the region revealing perfumed ripe plum, cassis and kirsch, leather and cassis, and earthiness that meld into ripe strawberries, spices and minerals on the long finish.

A true expression of Montalcino, from one of the most influential estates in the region.

About Talenti

Purchasing the Pian del Conte estate in the 1950s, Pierluigi Talenti was always a true traditionalist, with his winemaking and viticulture.

During his time at Il Poggione Estate he concentrated on making elegant wines with finesse, as opposed to the bigger, more brutish and powerful styles that so prevailed in the region.

His constant learning and evolution was focused on the clonal variation found in Sangiovese, and this focus is what helped him continually improve his wines.

While now in the hands of his grandson Riccardo, that commitment to tradition continues as the third generation now tends to their 20ha of vines across the estate, working with the same passion and dedication to the Sangiovese grape that his grandfather bestowed upon the family.

Deep ruby red in colour with violet highlights. Intensely fruity and fresh with aroma of cherry, plum and sour cherry. Smooth and mineral on the palate, featuring a good structure with nicely balanced tannins.

Critic Reviews

Decanter Magazine

"''With bright red currant aromas and pomegranate flavour, both completed by black pepper complexity and a smoky finish. The palate is almost full, while chewy and sweet, fine tannins lend perfect balance with refreshing acidity and a broad, cherry finish. Great definition." - Aldo Fiordelli (Decanter Magazine)

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you.
