The wine matures for 15 to 18 months in used French oak barrels, and then for a further 18 months in the bottle. It is not filtered.
Tasting Notes: The Montepeloso Eneo is a gorgeous Tuscan red blend. Flavors of blueberry, dark cherry, and shaved chocolate combine with velvety, soft tannins. There is also pronounced minerality accompanied by spice. Pair with grilled meat, aged cheeses and pasta.
