97 points Wine Enthusiast
Outer quote mark Focused and loaded with finesse, this opens with enticing aromas of menthol, graphite, rose and forest floor. Full bodied and delicious, the linear, energized palate features ripe Marasca cherry, licorice, mint and vanilla before a coffee-bean finish. Firm, polished tannins and fresh acidity provide support. *Editors’ Choice* (KO) Inner quote mark (3/2021)

95 points Wine Spectator
Outer quote mark This is supple and round, evoking macerated cherry, plum and licorice flavors, framed by accents of iron, tea and wild herbs. Solidly built, with a dense matrix of tannins enforcing the finish. Shows fine overall balance. (BS) Inner quote mark (3/2021)

94 points Decanter
Outer quote mark With varying altitudes and soils, Talenti’s diverse vineyards are dispersed through the southern area of Montalcino. Making the wine since 1999, Riccardo Talenti amasses the different components to achieve an overall balance of ripeness, acidity and alcohol. The 2016 is less immediately expressive and effusively fragrant than previous vintages. Nevertheless, its discreet charms are apparent. There’s an earthy, nutty tug underneath spiced red fruit, and it demonstrates Sangiovese’s weightlessness and tactile powdery tannins. Tangy and mineral-driven on the finish. (MM) Inner quote mark (4/2021)
