Since 1972 the estate has been owned by renowned entrepreneur Angelo Jacorossi, renowned entrepreneurs. Talosa was one of the first wineries in Montepulciano to undertake the quest for fine quality which brought this appellation to the heights of Tuscan and Italian winemaking. The main ageing cellar is in the old town centre of Montepulciano, in an underground area between two of the oldest buildings called Palazzo Tarugi e Palazzo Sinatti.He Talosa Cellar date back to the 16th century and visiting them is like stepping back time. The brick passageways contain a series of vaults and niches where the barrels are placed.

Visitors to this magical place automatically assume an air of respect or even reverence for the force of history pulsating these walls. The winery applies this same respect and reverence to cultivation of the vineyards and production of the quality wines.

We visited for a wine tasting and to explore the wine cellar. We were treated to extremely hospitable service and allowed to independently go about the wine cellar.

We made an appointment for a tour and wine tasting. Andrea was our host. We've toured many cellars and caves, but this one was interesting because of it's age and history; there are actually Tuscan ruins down below. We had a private sampling of Talosa wines; really enjoyed the Nobile Reserva. Everything was done right. Wines are available for shipping;... More

We visited during low season, so we had the tour and tasting all to ourselves. The town is charming, and the tour and wine at Talosa was delicious. I booked a week in advance via email with no trouble.

Being allowed to just wander freely through barrel caves wasn't something I was expecting on our trip to Montepulciano, but it's a great treat. It shows how proud these wineries are not only of their product, but also their facility and history. Talosa makes wonderful wine and provides easy and reasonable shipping if you choose to order more than you... More

This is a beautiful shop with a fun staff. It was fun to explore the cellar on a self-guided tour and the tasting was a great experience. Andrea was friendly and informative and the wine was pleasant. Definitely stop by if you find yourself in Montepulciano!

We were referred here by our Italian friends from Cortona. Upon arriving we found the tasting room was full so we decided to do the self-tour first. We travelled down many flights of stairs, made some twisting turns, went through a small tunnel and down some more stairs ... at the bottom we were greeted with cavernous underground space where...

The tour of the huge barrels aging the various wines under their palazzo was very interesting and made some very nice photos, too. Andrea, our guide, was very good at explaining the operations at the winery and the differences in their wines. Afterwards we did a wine tasting upstairs and ordered some bottles to be sent home. FYI, their aged... More
