Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is the first Italian DOC.This place, -also referred to as “The King of All Wines”- was known to be the favorite of some of the most influential Popes, Kings, and Presidents of Italy. Montepulciano in Tuscany holdssome of the world’s greatest hidden treasures. One of them is Fattoria Della Talosa.
Talosa’s story started over 50 years ago when Angelo Jacorossi acquired this beautiful historical estate, (and when I say beautiful, I really mean be-a-u-ti-ful.) The Jacorossi family started pushing very strongly to produce extremely high-quality wines, so much so that this estate became a watershed in the quality of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Today, this award-winning winery is being managed by the 3rd generation of the Jacorossi family.
This property comprises more than 80 acres of vineyards, established in one of the loveliest Crus in Montepulciano called Pietrose. This outstanding place is located at a 350–400-meter altitude, with the vineyards facing southwest. The vines thrive in medium-textured soils of Pliocene origin, with Tuff and clayey sands. These perfect terroir conditions, combined with the expert hands of winemakers Christian and Luigi, result in alluring, unique, and powerful wines.
The estate is ridiculously beautiful, a place that seems to be the set of a medieval time movie. Talosa’s historical cellar dates back to the 16th century. Visiting this place is like stepping back in time. The cellar is built in an underground area between Tarugi Palace and the Sinatti Palace, two of the oldest buildings in the city.
Aging: 2 years in the new oak tonneaux, big barrels, and stainless steel.
Tasting Notes: 100% Sangiovese. This wine has a beautifully intense and lively ruby-red color. The fruity notes are charming and enveloping, with aromas of blueberries, blackberries, and black currants. Followed by floral perceptions reminiscent of dark red rose petals left slightly dried. On the palate, it is fresh with soft tannins. Great length.
~94 Points, Luca Maroni.
The sensory progression strikes at first glance and described the main soul with notes of cherries, red plums, blackberries, and wet leaves, it reveals a completely Mediterranean soul in the sensory triumph of thyme, marjoram, and rosemary. Medium-full body, velvety tannins with a creamy finish and a juicy finish that stretches well in progression. The finish is sweet and slightly sweet in closing. Light and brightness denote quality right away. Excellent vision in the difficult vintage. Drink now. ~93 WinesCritic.com
The 2017 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Filai Lunghi wafts up with a darkly alluring display that mixes ripe plums with undergrowth and hints of wet stone. This is soft and lifted, quite pure and energetic for the vintage, with gobs of minerality and stunning acidity. It tapers off purple-tinged and perfumed with incredible freshness to a hint of sweet violet candies. This shows the great balance for such a warm vintage, and it is so easy to like. ~91 Vinous Media.
