A blend of 45% Sangiovese, 35% Montepulciano, 15% Alicante and 5% Marselan grown biodynamically with natural yeasts and no filtration. This wine has a colour of dark cherries. The nose is opulent and intense with predominantly black fruit. The pronounced minerality is accompanied by toasted aromas of hardwood and spices. The palate is silky and well balanced with an extremely long length.

Third Party Reviews
The Montepeloso 2018 Eneo (a blend of 55% Sangiovese, 25% Montepulciano, 15% Alicante and 5% Malvasia Nera) is another unexpected blend from this very promising estate on the Tuscan Coast. With 34,000 bottles made, this is the mid-entry cru wine. It offers a beautifully saturated color with thickness, fruity richness and nicely integrated tannins. It’s a bit harder to dissect the various components in this blend, but that solo voice of Sangiovese does emerge with wild plum, potting earth and blue lilac. There is an extra point of acidity that also reminds me of the mighty Tuscan grape. This well-priced wine is worth seeking out. Score 95, eRobertParker, Jan 2021
The 2018 Eneo, Montepeloso’s Montepulciano-based blend, is redolent of crushed red berry fruit, licorice, blood orange, star anise and rose petal. Bright and gracious, with terrific purity, the Eneo beautifully captures the understated, nuanced style of the year. It is a bit more red-toned than I recall from barrel. This is so nicely done.
