Talenti

Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy

Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy Not far from the small medieval borough of S. Angelo in Colle, stands Pian di Conte, a beautiful building of antique origins, which looks on the gentle valley of the river Orcia and is the seat of the Talenti winery. The company was founded in 1980, when Pierluigi Talenti decided to buy this rustic property and grounds that he had fallen in love with many years previously; it was in the 1950s that he decided to leave the mountains of his native Romagna for the sweet and sunny hills of Montalcino in Tuscany. Well, it’s easy to fall in love with the Tuscan land, air and way of life. Experience and thorough research on viticultural clones in the Montalcino region, combined with a healthy respect for tradition, allowed the company Pierluigi founded to reach exceedingly high levels of quality. At present the company owns a total of 40 hectares, 20 of which are vineyard (Brunello, Rosso di Montalcino and I.G.T. - or geographically indicated wines of the region), 4 hectares olive-grove and orchards, forest and cultivated ground. 15 hectares of vineyard are cultivated with Sangiovese vines from clones obtained by Pierluigi’s research in Tuscany. The plants which are cultivated in the area of Montalcino have been selected personally by Pierluigi Talenti himself. The resulting product has great character and personality. The remaining 5 hectares are planted with indigenous and international varieties, such as Colorino, Canaiolo and Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet. The vines grow in a soil of medium density with rock fragments and are situated at an altitude of about 200 to 400 meters above sea level, an area very well suited for high-quality production, further backed by a micro-climate which particularly favors viticulture. The Azienda boasts a modern cellar facility with large temperature controlled stainless steel vats for fermentation, 1000 hectoliter, medium-sized wooden casks made of Allier and Slavonian oak and 600 hl in Allier-casks for the development of the wines; the bottling area and an underground gallery are reserved for further maturation of the wines before release.
