Vinous 91 Points

Dark red fruits, earthiness, tobacco and smoke come together in the 2012 A Quo, Montepeloso's entry-level red. There is plenty of the estate's trademark richness in the glass, but in a slightly more lifted style that makes the wine accessible young. The flavor profile is dominated by herbal, brambly notes from the Montepulciano and Sangiovese, but the sense of palate weight is pure Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a terrific showing from Montepeloso and proprietor Fabio Chiarellotto.-AG
