The wines of Proprietor Fabio Chiarelloto are some of the highly prized coming out of Tuscany today. The A Quo is his baby and if you like Tuscany best, I also highly recommend seeking out his Eneo and his Nardo, both get huge scores by Parker but at a higher price point. This red is one of the great buys coming out of Tuscany today, I strongly recommend while we have availability.
Enjoy with Bisteccha Fiorentina
Third Party Reviews
The 2017 A Quo is fabulous. Then again, Montepeloso did not bottle any of their top wines in 2017. All of the fruit usually destined for Eneo, Nardo and Gabbro went into this, the estate’s entry-level wines. Dark, pliant and supple, with tremendous fruit density, the 2017s is exceptionally beautiful from the very first taste. An infusion of succulent dark cherry, raspberry jam, rose petal and sweet spice runs through the A Quo, while bright acids and underpinnings of tannin give shape and persistence. All I can say is: wow! Score 91-93, Antonio Galloni, March 2019
