96 points Luca Gardini: "Talenti firm is running a project which is marking clear qualitative improvements every year. Cleanliness and finesse also in this 2017, with a very delicate nose, touches of red plum, then notes of lavender, chinotto and touches of white pepper. Palate with juicy and brackish tannins, nice tension and density, fruity-officinal finish. (Nov 2021)"

95 points Falstaff (3/18/22).

94 points International Wine Report: "Warm and deep in the sensory profile showing notes of black prunes, blackberries, wild myrtle, salted caramel and burnt mandarin rind. Full bodied, soft tannins perfectly integrated in the matrix and a sincere, genuine finale which uses persistency on the palate as its main weapon. Better from 2022. (2021)"

93 points Eric Guido (Vinous): "[$50 list] The bouquet on the 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is to die for, offering cloves and balsamic spices that give way to crushed cherries, sage and fresh mint. It’s elegant yet lifted in feel, with silky textures carrying the ripe wild berry fruits effortlessly across the palate. Saline-minerals combine with grippy tannins toward the close, slowing the 2017’s momentum ever so slightly, yet still permitting the most beautiful display of hard red candies and violet florals to linger incredibly long. What a gorgeous 2017, and with short-term cellaring potential as well. Of note is that Talenti’s production was down by 25% due to the conditions of the vintage, and there will not be a Riserva, as all of the juice went to the Brunello. Drink: 2023-2029. (Dec 2021)"

93 points James Suckling: "Dark-berry and cherry character with bark and mahogany in both the nose and palate. It’s full-bodied with integrated tannins. Linear and tight with a long finish. Needs time to open and soften. Try after 2023. (11/4/21)"
