The visit to the Talosa winery was very interesting. The organization was impeccable: after a quick tour of the cellar's barrels and a brief description of the aging of the wine, we had a tasting of 5 wines from the farm, led by the sommelier. The tasting, accompanied by Tuscan cold cuts and croutons, lasted about an hour. Excellent value for money. Visit recommended for all those people who want to taste good red wine in the heart of Montepulciano by learning to recognize the peculiarities and differences of the different types of red wine. Overall rating: 9/10

Excellent reception with excellent wine tasting. The only negative note is that it is indicated tasting of local appetizers with bread and instead we were served bread with excellent oil but not suitable for the reach of the living ... The description of the tour should be changed.

Wine tasting was affected by guide’s lack of enthusiasm and also answering phone while giving us the presentation also left us for 20 min between last wine tasting Cellar trip rushed. I would not do this again. Also made it easy not to purchase wine
