Talenti Trentennale Brunello di Montalcino 2011
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
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.
Chopped herb, forest floor, leather, espresso and a balsamic note are some of the aromas that waft out of the glass. The powerfully structured palate delivers prune, dried cherry, tobacco, and roasted coffee bean framed in firm fine-grained tannins. Give the tannins a few more years to unwind then drink to capture the fruit richness. Drink 2018-2023.
