Montepeloso A Quo 2017
First introduced with the 2008 vintage, A Quo is intended to be an affordable way to introduce consumers to the estate's unique aesthetic.

The 2017 A Quo is the only wine Montepeloso bottled in a brutal, challenging vintage in which dehydration took with it 40% of the potential crop. All of the best fruit went into the entry-level A Quo, which is positively stellar in 2017. Red cherry jam, mint, cedar and wild flowers are all wonderfully fused together in a sumptuous, racy Bolgheri red that punches well above its weight.
