Talento is produced only in the best vintages. This is a traditional Aglianico made of body, tannins, and dry extract but never forgetting drinkability.

Vintage Notes: The year 2012 started with a mild winter until the end of January when temperatures fell below zero. Together with a fresh and rainy March and April, this resulted in a late budding. Temperatures rose sharply at the end of June, reaching a maximum in mid-August of over 100 degrees for many days, with little rainfall. Notwithstanding these drought-like conditions, the vines did not suffer stress due to the good subsoil moisture from early spring rains. The Aglianico for Talento was harvested between the end of September and the first week of October. This was another early harvest due to the hot summer. The year produced healthy grapes with lower acidity and a good balance of alcohol, aroma and tannin.
