Talamonti, Loreto Aprutino, Pescara, Abruzzo, Italy

Dark ruby-red in colour with violet undertones. On the nose there are complex wild berry notes framed by elegant oak spices. Chiefly blackcurrant on the palate with spicy cherry integrated with hazelnut and coffee.

Made from 100% Montepulciano d'Abruzzo from selected vineyards located near the village of Loreto Aprutino in the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo area. The soil is stony, calcareous, structured and free draining situated at an altitude of 300m above sea level.

VINIFICATION: Following a rigorous hand harvest in mid - October, the grapes are destemmed. Alcoholic fermentation with skin contact takes place with selected yeasts during 14 days with periodic pumping over. Malolactic fermentation follows in 300 litre French barriques (Allier and Troncais oak). Subsequently, the wine is aged for twelve months in 300 litre French oak barrels. The wine is then bottled and spends a further 12-months in the cellar before release.

While it is drinkable right now, Tre Saggi will age well for the next 8-10 years. Perfect with red meats, game and aged sheep cheese.

The name 'Tre Saggi' (The Three Wise Men) stems from three figures present in a fresco found in the Church of Santa Maria in Piano, located only 4km from the Talamonti vineyard-estate. These have been identified by historians as Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The landmark painting dates back to the 13th century and is considered one of the greatest artistic feats still existing in the region. The unknown author appears to have been inspired by Alighieri Dante's 'The Divine Comedy', as the fresco depicts an incredible journey in the afterlife. In the Catholic religion the Three Wise Men are considered magicians (astrologists) that travelled to Jerusalem to pay homage to the newly born baby Jesus. In addition, the number, three, has always been considered by ancient civilizations as the perfect number.

Talamonti's 'Tre Saggi' is the result of the team work and passion of their three pillars: The Chief Winemaker, Lucio Matricardi, the Sales Director, Rodrigo Redmont and the Family Proprietor, Antonella Di Tonno. Such a name was a natural choice for this single-vineyard wine, produced only in outstanding vintages.
