Terre di Talamo

Terre di Talamo is located south of Grosseto, in the Tuscan Maremma. The D.O.C.G. is Morellino di Scansano.

The 52 hectares estate is on a hillside facing the sea, and offers a view from the Port of Talamone to the Argentario promontory.

The vineyards extend over about 32 hectares. They are planted with Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Alicante, Petit Verdot and Vermentino.

At Terre di Talamo the following wines are produced: the Morellino di Scansano "Tempo", the Morellino Riserva, a Petit Verdot based IGT named "Percecco" and the Alicante passito "Ser Ciccio".

Three white wines are produced: the "Vento", pure Vermentino, the Vento Forte (late harvest, fermented in oak) and the Vento Teso (pure Viognier).

The range is completed by the rose' wine Piano Piano made with Sangiovese and Cabernet.

The terrains, which are quite stony, consist of a mixture of brown clay, with exposures from Southeast to Northwest.
