Montepeloso A Quo Toscana 2020
Montepeloso A Quo Toscana 2020 from 8wines
Cellar for up to 7 years. No need to decant before serving. Fabio Chiarelotto grew up in Switzerland, but returned to his native Tuscany to pursue his dream of making wine. The Montepeloso estate has 15 acres of vineyards in the hills of Suvereto close to the coast in Bolgheri which is the warmest region in Tuscany. Making robust, powerful wines is easy here, but Fabio prefers to preserve elegance and freshness in his wines. To achieve this he typically does short macerations, uses only natural yeasts for fermentation and bottles his wines without filtration. Fabio’s A Quo has a reputation for being one of the best value Super Tuscan wines on the market thanks to its rich fruit and refined structure. It’s crafted from Montepulciano, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Marselan and Alicante grapes grown on lime-rich silex and clay soils which are carefully harvested by hand. Once in the winery the grapes are fully destemmed and fermented using wild yeasts. The young wine is then aged in used barrels for four months before bottling. This creates a very expressive and lively red which is bursting with dark berries, cherries and rich plum notes along with hints of dried herbs, sweet spice and licorice.
