Cellar for up to 13 years. Decant 1 hour before serving.

The historic family-run Talenti estate is located to the south of Montalcino near the charming medieval village of San Angrelo in Colle. Ricardo Talenti recently took over the running of the property from his grandfather, Pierluigi, and has succeeded in seamlessly combining tradition and heritage with modern techniques and technologies. Today he has around 21 hectares of vineyards of which 16 hectares are planted with Sangiovese.

Ricardo’s Brunello is crafted from five of the estate’s older Sangiovese vineyards which were planted back in 1981 and produce intensely-flavoured and concentrated fruit. Some of the sites sit at 400 metres above sea level which helps to add freshness and elegance to the overall cuvee. Following vinification the young wine is aged in a combination of 500 litre French oak barrels and 15-25 hectolitre Slavonian oak casks for at least 24 months.

Bright cherries, leather and chocolate spring out of the glass, giving way to classical-style Brunello on the palate which effortlessly fuses beautiful ripe fruit flavours with plenty of spice and earthy character. The full body and firm tannins make this a great wine to cellar for another decade or so, although it can also be enjoyed alongside hearty dishes like a fine steak, barbecued meats, venison, or fresh pasta served with a rich ragu sauce.
