Fabio Chiarelotto er en vinfilosof, der går sine egne veje. Mens de fleste af Maremmas producenter gerne dyrker i dalen, klatrer Fabio op ad skråningerne, hvor vinene får uhørt mineralitet, nerve og liv på et helt andet niveau. De lerede, fossilerede jorde har han beplantet med både Sangiovese, Alicante, Montepulciano, Cabernet Sauvignon og Marselan og blandingen skifter mellem hans forskellige vine fra år til år. Fabio er en upcoming star i området og hans vine er stadig regulære kup ift nabogården Tua Ritas 100-pointsvine. Fabio siger: “Our approach to viticulture is organic but we are not certified. we never use herbicides.

Proprietor Fabio Chiarelotto and longtime winemaker Fabrizio Moltard ratchet things up with their stellar 2018 Nardo. Super-ripe black cherry, plum, gravel, spice, underbrush, menthol, licorice and scorched earth give the 2018 its distinct, sepia-toned personality. Dark and brooding in the glass, with imposing tannins, the 2018 is a flat-out stunner. Give it a few years in bottle first. Nardo is built around a core of Sangiovese, with Montepulciano, Alicante and Malvasia Nera. Chiarelotto has reduced the presence of Montepulciano in the blend. If the 2018 is any indication, that choice looks to be spot on.

Here is a generous and nicely concentrated blend from the Tuscan Coast. Featuring 45% Sangiovese, 20% Montepulciano, 20% Alicante and 15% Malvasia Nera, the wine opens to a dark and impenetrable appearance. The 2018 Nardo is a small and precious production with only 1,900 bottles made. It is sultry, extracted and velvety, but it also shows impeccable balance. The Montepeloso team shows real talent when it comes to experimenting and perfecting these offbeat blends, and I cannot imagine any other estate presenting such seamless results using these specific vinous building blocks. Dark fruit, cacao, cedar, cigar box and warm notes of soil or forest floor lift gently from the bouquet. This is a real beauty.

Aromas of blackberries, walnuts and bark, as well as oyster shell and cedar, following through to a full body with round, juicy tannins that are integrated and fine-grained, despite being mouth filling. Needs time to soften. Try after 2022.
