Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

The 2001 Nardo, Sangiovese plus Cabernet Sauvignon and Montepulciano, substantially lifts the intensity level, with a blast of jammy plum and cassis fruit, warm, penetrating, and spicy, and the long, authoritative flavors, the depth, structure, and definition of a superior wine.

About This Producer


Tucked away in the hills of Suvereto near Bolgheri on the Tuscan Coast - one of the hottest areas in Tuscany - is the 15-acre Montepeloso estate. The winemaker, Swiss-born Fabio Chiarelotto, admits about his wine that it's "easy to produce concentrated wines in such a hot climate but it's much harder to achieve elegance and finesse." In order to take full advantage of the terroir's potential, he overhauled the vineyards in 1997 - retraining, pruning, and even re-grafting many vines. In the cellar, he does relatively short macerations, employs natural yeasts during fermentation, and bottles without filtration. Nardo (Tuscan dialect for lavender), remains Montepeloso's flagship wine. It is an unfiltered blend of approximately 70% Sangiovese, 20% Montepulciano, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and never made in a quantity of more than 400 cases a year.
