(EN) Talamonti’s innovative spirit and winemaking expertise is demonstrated prominently in Kudos. The wine is the result of 5 years of joint research with the Università degli Studi di Teramo on the estate’s terroir and different forms of oak ageing. During five years, the study focused on the evolution of the Montepulciano and Merlot grapes in different oak barrels, varying the size, the origin, the seasoning and toasting of the wood. Kudos aims to introduce itself not simply as a range extension, but as spokesman for an estate’s evolution and development. Estate-bottled only in exceptional vintage years, this SuperAbruzzo integrates the native varietal of Montepulciano d’Abruzzo with the noble French grape of Merlot in the extraordinary Loreto Aprutino terroir. A fusion between the king of the native varietals of our region with one of the greatest international varietals. The whole is greater then the sum of its parts.
