Riccardo Talenti’s New Vintage Has Arrived!


The 2009 vintage of Talenti Brunello di Montalcino has just arrived and is already receiving critical acclaim, scoring 92 points from The Wine Advocate, who noted that the wine “impresses for its textural richness and the grand intensity of its bouquet” while adding that the wine “is an expansive and integrated Brunello with sweet tannins and an exceedingly smooth finish.”  2009 was a difficult vintage for Brunello producers; a hot summer and lack of rain during critical parts of the growing season hindered many winemakers. Riccardo’s 2009 Brunello is immediately approachable while offering the balance and finesse that many producers were unable to achieve in this challenging vintage.  We currently have 750ml, 1.%L, and 375ml bottles available, with discounts on 3, 5, 10, 25, and 50 case drops.
In addition, we have a limited supply of Talenti’s 2008 Brunello di Montalcino in 750ml, as well as less than 15 cases of 1.5L bottles. The 2008 Brunello received 93 Points from Wine Spectator.

Updated Vintages for Talenti By-the-Glass

Along with the 2009 Brunello, we recently brought in several hundred cases of 2012 Rosso di Montalcino in both 750s and 1.5Ls, as well as Riccardo’s Tuscan Blend, Trefolo, and Bordeaux-style blend, Rispollo. The 2012 Rosso is positioned perfectly for a high end by-the-glass pour, while the Trefolo and Rispollo offer slightly more economical placements while retaining the commitment to quality that Riccardo Talenti exhibits across his entire line.
