Winemaking Notes: A Quo is Montepeloso’s fresh high-flier red wine. Made using grapes from the more recent estate plantings (six to twelve years), A Quo showcases Montepeloso’s special terroir while also being accessible in its youth. It ferments in large steel tanks and ages for seven months in barrels (15% new) of various sizes. The wine ages for four months in bottle before release.
Tasting Notes: A Quo is the young and juicier wine in the Montepeloso lineup; it's balanced, detailed, and ready to rock. The nose is dominated by dark red fruit and herbs intermixed with spicy aromas and mineral notes. There is nice tension and texture on the palate.
