96 points James Suckling: "There’s freshness galore here i,n the form of orange zest and citrus peel. But this Brunello isn’t short on power either; red licorice, cardamom and dried hibiscus pepper the nose. To support the ripe fruit are layers of sinewy tannins and gliding acidity, making for an altogether sophisticated and edgy impression. Refined and elegant on the long finish. Drink from 2023. (11/7/19)"

96 points International Wine Report: "The 2015 Talenti Brunello di Montalcino is simply gorgeous. This young Brunello displays wonderful elegance with beautiful floral characteristics accented by red hibiscus flowers, raspberries, currants and lemon peel that all come together harmoniously. On the palate this possesses a gorgeous full body, with excellent quality tannins, perfectly ripe and elegant in structure, ending with a precise and tailored finish. This is a fabulous Brunello to approach earlier on, but it should go on to age tremendously well for many years to come. Drink: 2022-2039. (Mar 2020)"

95 points Wine Spectator: "[$70 list] Well-delineated black cherry and black currant flavors are matched to graphite, earth and wild herb accents in this powerful red. Balanced in a broad-shouldered way, this leaves a vibrant impression on the lingering finish. Best from 2023 through 2042. 380 cases imported. (3/18/20)"

95 points Decanter: "Talenti's Brunello is assembled from five different vineyards between Sant'Angelo in Colle and Castelnuovo dell'Abate. With varying soils, they also range in altitude from 250 to 400 metres. The lower sites develop higher alcohol and sweeter, riper fruit whereas the higher plots impart more acidity and fresh fruit. This is a delectable panoramic of 2015, bursting with evocative scents of chopped herbs, orange oil and forest berries. On the palate strawberry and raspberry are delicately laced with vanilla. Bright, juicy acidity keeps this light on its feet, while powdery tannins cleanse the mouth. Absolutely moreish, and for value for money, this is a must-buy. Drinking Window: 2020-2030. Alcohol 14.5%. (Feb 2020)"
