Located in the southern part of Montalcino, overlooking the Orcia river valley, the Talenti winery was established in 1980 by Pierluigi Talenti. Today, his grandson Riccardo oversees the vineyards and production. The success of Talenti has most to do with their mix of tradition and technology. This is an open-knit Brunello that soothes the senses with dark, rich fruit, earth and floral tones, yet has the structure and balance to mature in the cellar for a decade or more. All of the critics agree; 2010 Talenti is not to be missed. ✦ Talenti Brunello di Montalcino 2010 JS 96 » $54 "...layered and rich...showing polish and refinement..." (1554077) a lesson in Terroir l ocated in the south-east of Montalcino, at an altitude of 320 meters above sea level, the Palazzo vineyards are farmed using integrated agriculture much like Biodynamic. This allows the Montalcino terroir to speak clearly through their perfectly ripe fruit. Hand harvesting permits sorting in the vineyards, which in turns assures that only the best bunches make it to the winery's sorting table. After extended maceration and aging for 30-36 months in large oak casks, the Palazzo Brunello emerges as an elegant beauty of a wine. Outward and red-fruited, yet savory and grounded by earth tones. ✦ Palazzo Brunello di Montalcino 2010 JS 98 » $69 "Wonderful aromas of salt, savory dried meat and red fruits...full body, with chewy tannins and a long and intense finish..."
