Talamonti was founded in 2001 by the Di Tonno family, in a magnificent, unspoiled part of the Abruzzi. Our daily objective lies in constantly seeking the best interaction between the varietal in our vineyards, the sun-exposition, the training method, and the desired yield, with the sole desire to best express our unique terroir.
The Cellars are filled with dozens of prime oak barrels selected for greater variety in origin, grain, seasoning and toasture. Following an extensive study on the aging of the Montepulciano d’Abruzzo grape in wooden casks, Talamonti has chosen to utilize different 300 liters and 3400 liters oak barrels from Austria, France, USA, and Eastern Europe.
The vinification area hosts select state-of-the art fermentation vats of different sizes in order to vinify separately the different parcels of vineyards. In addition, we have our own bottling line and labeling equipment, purchased in 2008, in order to vertically integrate so as to personally control as much of the process as possible.
