In the south of Montalcino, near the medieval village of S. Angelo in Colle, lies Pian di Conte. A beautiful old town and the seat of the renowned Azienda Agricola Talenti.
The winery was founded in 1980. The estate has 27 hectares of land, 11 of which are vineyards.
Pierluigi Talenti was known for the vinification of expressive wines full of character. After his death, his son and grandson stepped into his footsteps, assisted by the famous oenologist Ferrini.
The vines grow on stony soils with medium structure and a particularly favourable microclimate at an altitude of 200-400 m.a.s.l. Vinification takes place in stainless steel vats and for the ageing process there are barrels of Allier and Slavonian oak available.
