2016 Trebí, Talamonti, Abruzzo, Italy, Trebbiano d'Abruzzo DOC
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.
The soil is stony, calcareous, well-structured and drained. Altitude: 300 meters above sea level.
Following a careful selection of the grapes in early September, the grape stalks are removed and a short cold maceration of the crushed grapes in stainless steel is applied. Subsequently, a soft pressing and decanting of the must takes place. Alcoholic fermentation with select yeast lasts 10 days. Bottling takes place a few months after the harvest.
