Family-owned since 1972, Fattoria della Talosa was one of the first wineries in Montepulciano to raise the profile of the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano appellation to what is now one of the most highly regarded areas of Tuscany.
Talosa is located in one of the best production areas of Montepulciano called "Pietrose". The medium-textured soils are of Pliocene origin; with volcanic soils and and clay sands characterizing this exceptional zone which is capable of producing great wines.
