Riccardo Talenti Rosso di Montalcino 2006

Member Review by Eric Guido:

A brilliant ruby red color. Aromas of Chocolate covered raspberry candy, vanilla and dusty dried flowers. Very interesting nose. Cherry and Strawberry fruit fight for the center stage on the palette with hints of clove and minerals. Medium length and slightly disappointing finish with a bit of alcohol which leaves this wine seeming out of balance.

Aromas of dusty dried flowers, cranberry, herbs and smoked meats formed a beautiful bouquet for the wine. It was light on the palate with zippy acidity, which worked wonders with the food and showed cherry fruit, sage and minerals. However, there was one drawback: it was so well matched to the veal saltimbocca that it provided very little contrast. To pick up sage in the wine while having it on my plate was a bit odd. It was, however, an excellent Rosso di Montalcino and a perfect way to explore Sangiovese if you’re someone who loves Chianti and is searching for something more.
