      Excellent Nardo 2011: Dark and powerful, yet highly elegant aromas of wild cherries, spices, liquorice, cassis and leather with exceptional balance and purity. A radiant, cosmopolitan Italian. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2011 Nardo blasts across the palate with super-ripe dark cherries, rapsberry jam smoke, tobacco, incense and new leather. Dark and voluptuous tothe core, the 2011 boasts stunning textural depth and richness. Readers need tobe prepared for a full-bodied, resonant, unapologetically rich red here. Nardois 50% Montepulciano, 45% Sangiovese and 5% Marsellan, a blend that worksparticularly well here." Antonio Galloni

    • "Gabbro" Rosso Toscana IGT 2011

      “Gabbro” Rosso Toscana IGT 2011

      Gabbro is the essence of Montepelosos nobelster Cabernet Sauvignon vines - partly over 40 years old. Impressively complex bouquet of dark fruits, smoke and grilled vegetables. Reveals on the palate powerful and muscular his pedigree and his great class. Exquisite, complex, nuanced, persistent, long ... Gabbro offers really everything that belongs to an unforgettable wine experience. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Montepeloso's 2011 Gabbro continues to come together in bottle. The warmth of the year has baked out some of the varietal notes that are usually present. Instead, the 2011 stands out for its intensity, volume and extroverted personality. In other words, exactly what one might expect from Suvereto in a warm year. Blackberry jam, mocha, smoke and tobacco all flow through to the huge finish." Antonio Galloni

      "Sufficient fresh red fruits, marshmallow and a mixture of basil, rose and olive oil on the nose. Developing silky tannins with slight fresh wood and a layer of elegant velvet. Sexy finesse. Layers of fruit and tannin. All about texture and structure. Needs time in bottle: better after 2016." James Suckling

    About the winemakers
    Montepeloso
    Tuscany | Maremma
    Montepeloso

    In 1998 Fabio Chiarelotto settled where it is perhaps most idyllic in the Maremma: The winery of Montepeloso, a visionary wine-grower who was already on his way to international fame, lies not far from the Tuscan coast above the famous Tua Rita estate in Suvereto. In this place, which is not infrequently hit by strong winds, red wines are pressed which, thanks to their personality and finesse, are among the most refined representatives of the region. Instead of merely enjoying his good reputation on the dreamy patch of earth, the original hobby winemaker and trained historian spent eight years redesigning the existing vineyards in such a way that the vines can actually exploit their full potential. Chiarelotto experimented on the slopes and in the cellar with different mixtures and techniques in order to be able to reproduce the terroir masterfully. The results today are the noblest drops of unique complexity and beguiling elegance, which do not orient themselves at all to the mainstream.

    The terroir itself is exceptional: the calcareous and stony clay soils in the hills around the town of Suvereto give the organically cultivated grapes with their high proportion of flint (Silex) their high complexity and minerality, as well as the proximity to the sea give the products of the still fairly young cult wine a surprising intensity of taste. Similar to Gianfranco Soldera, who brings the most expensive Brunello di Montalcino to the market in his exclusive company Case Basse, Chiarelotto is driven by an idiosyncratic personal philosophy: A downright obsessive commitment to quality, paired with an alleged lack of interest in the assessment by other representatives of his guild of the crescences emerging in his estate.

    Since he discovered his love for wine, the newcomer, eccentric and tireless perfectionist, praised by many renowned critics in high tones, has dedicated himself to the world-famous Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varieties. But also regional classics like the Sangiovese dominating Northern Italy as well as Montepulciano, Marselan, a new breed between Cabernet and Grenache Noir, Colorino and Alicante Bouschet find his pleasure. Chiarelotto's guiding idea - an integral combination of nature and human-agrocultural inventiveness - is reflected in his wines. SUPERIORE.DE
