2017 Montepeloso A Quo Duo

In most years, the organic estate of Montepeloso makes four wines: Nardo, Gabbro, Eneo, and a 'village wine' from Suvereto, A Quo. Nardo typically retails for $150, Gabbro a little less. Eneo, similarly, is just NOT an inexpensive wine. These wines are among Tuscany's very best. A Quo is usually a blend of younger vines of Sangiovese, Cabernet, Marselan, Montepulciano, and Alicante Bouschet. Not in 2017. That summer was blazing hot in Tuscany, and Montepeloso made the decision to declassify ALL of their crus. They ONLY made A Quo. And while I might not pay $150 for this wine, I wouldn't balk at $26. $18 is just nuts. Aged for 24+ months in a blend of new and used barrique, A Quo is quite the sumptuous treat. Red and black cherries, wild plum, cedar, spice, garrigue, and warm, toasty vanilla oak do a happy little dance with each other. The finish lasts about a minute. The sadness of the empty bottle lasts a lot longer than that.
