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.

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.

Montepeloso is the boutique estate of Fabio Chiarelotto, who is now a serious rising star in Tuscany. His tiny 6ha property is located right next to Tua Rita estate, in a special part of Tuscany cooled by maritime breezes and under pinned by iron-rich soils and petrified clay. Fabio has put an incredible amount of work into his vineyard, with the sole aim of producing wines of purity and finesse, rather than pure power and concentration sometimes found in this region.
The wines of Montepeloso were highlighted recently by both Vinous and Wine Advocate, and there is a lot of excitement about Montepeloso right now – so much so that these wines are becoming increasingly hard to get hold of.
