Tasting Notes

The wines of Fabio Chiarelloto, owner and winemaker of Montepeloso, are some of the most highly praised wines from the Tuscan coastal zone of Maremma. The Etruscan coast is warmer than inland Chianti, which has led to greater varietal diversity.

His most approachable wine – A Quo – is made from younger vines,and delivers a delicious and wonderful expression of the coastal vineyards. A Quo leans most heavily on Cabernet Sauvignon (35%) and Montepulciano (30%) but is enhanced with Sangiovese (15%), Marselan (15%) and Alicante Bouchet (5%).

The result is an intriguing assemblage illustrating a complex array of aromas and flavours, including bright, red berry fruit, floral overtones, and spicy notes on the finish. Subtle oak treatment rounds out this wine.

Third Party Reviews

The 2018 A Quo is rich and explosive in the glass, with superb presence and tons of intensity, but all in the gracious style of the year. Crushed flowers, sweet red berry fruit and spice are front and center. In 2018, A Quo is supremely delicious. Best of all, it remains a tremendous value in artisan wine. Score 92, Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Jan 2021

A blend of 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Montepulciano, 15% Sangiovese, 15% Marselan and 5% Alicante Bouschet, the Montepeloso 2018 A Quo is the entry-level expression that unfolds to a rich and sultry display of dark fruit, spice and a touch of charred meat. The blend is quite eccentric, but the basic elements are all there, such as the structure from the Cabernet Sauvignon, the wild character of the Montepulciano and the perfumed intensity of the other grapes. This is a 35,000-bottle production and a terrific value buy. Score 92, eRobertParker, Jan 2021
