2015 Talamonti Moda, Abruzzo, Italy, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo
Talamonti was founded by the Di Tonno family, in a magnificent, unspoiled part of the Abruzzi. The daily objective lies in constantly seeking the best interaction between the varietal in their vineyards, the sun-exposition, the training method, and the desired yield, with the sole desire to best express our unique terroir.
Talamonti vineyards at the turn of the century have expanded to 32 hectares in production in the municipality of Loreto Aprutino. In addition to the native Montepulciano d’Abruzzo and Trebbiano d’Abruzzo, other varietals have been planted. Pecorino, for example was planted in 2004 as part of an estate experiment to study the ability of other varieties to adapt and express themselves.
This wine is grown in a soil with pebbles and limestone with an excellent drainage. The vineyard is situated at an altitude of 300 meters. Harvest in mid-October. Fully destemmed. Maceration for 10 days with regular pumping. It is aged for 6 months in large French barrels of 3400 liters. Followed by a short bottle aging.
