Piero, a tribute to Pierluigi Talenti, comes from a 1.95 ha vineyard not far from the centre of the estate. It stands out from all the other vineyards because of its unique microclimate. The gently sloping terrain, surrounded by woods, is rich in Galestro, facing southeast and situated at an altitude of 410 m.a.s.l. Complex, fresh bouquet, rich in notes of ripe red fruits such as plum, black cherry and raspberry, which combine with ripening spices such as, tobacco and liquorice. Powerful on the palate, with good balance and softness. Sweetish, elegant tannin.
Maceration and alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature (28-29°C). Matured for at least 24 months in French oak tonneaux.
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.
