Pierluigi Talenti was one of those instrumental in creating a worldwide reputation for Brunello. His work with Il Poggione helped to make it one of the finest estates in Italy. In 1980 he purchased this property he had fallen in love with and dedicated it to vines (and olive trees, of course). Here he put his years of experience to work and planted only the best clones for fine Brunello production.Two further generations of Talentis have now made their mark on this estate and Doctor Roberto and his son Ricardo Talenti ensure that the tradition of fine Brunello is carried forward. In an areas of irregular quality, Talenti is a reliable source of the finest Montalcino has to offer.
