93 Pts Antonio Galloni - Vinous
"Juicy, dark and enveloping, the 2011 Kepos wraps around the palate with seemingly endless layers of fruit. The 2011 isn't a big wine, but it is highly attractive, not to mention impeccably balanced. Hints of rose petal, cinnamon and mint add lift on the finish. This is a drop-dead gorgeous wine from Ampeleia. Kepos is 40% Grenache, 40% Mourvedre, 10% Carignano, 5% Alicante Bouschet and 5% Marsellan. Drinking window: 2014 - 2026."
"Once again, I was deeply impressed with the wines I tasted from Ampeleia. These gorgeous Maremma reds deserve much more love. Over the last few years, Ampeleia has emerged as one of the most exciting properties on the Tuscan coast. Proprietress Elisabetta Foradori and her team prove they can also make great wines in Tuscany, not just Trentino. My only regret is I rarely see these wines in the market, which is a real shame. Readers who can find any of these wines should not hesitate." (08/13)
"Five Mediterranean grape varieties from the vineyards of Ampeleia di Sotto blended in a single wine. These are the winery's vineyards closest to the sea, where the Mediterranean scrub dominates the landscape permeating the air with its fragrances: this is Kepos, the authentic and natural interpretation of Ampeleia's warmest and most radiant nature." - Winery
"In the 60's, Erica and Peter Max Suter, a Swiss couple, bought the abandoned farm and turned it into a rural estate with woods and pastures, breeding sheep and pigeons as well as planting a vineyard; soon the Meleta winery (in Italian Meleto is an apple orchard and the winery's name derives from the orchard on its land) was known for its wine and products. It was at that time that Cabernet Franc and Merlot were brought to Roccatederighi."
"Ampeleia di Sopra: Ampeleia di Sopra:70 hectares, of which 15 hectares of vineyards - Ampeleia di Sopra is the largest land unit of the estate. Placed between 450 and 600 metres above sea level, it is mainly planted with Cabernet Franc. The different exposures, the various soil-types and the climate marked by sea breezes meeting the land's energy - these are the elements that determine the uniqueness of these sites, dominated by chestnut woods. Ampeleia di Sopra includes the "Lo Sbocco" vineyard where the Merlot vines used for Empatia plunge their roots."
"Native to the Near East, the grape varieties brought together in Ampeleia - among many others - took root in the Mediterranean farmlands, contributing to the definition of a fundamental aspect of our cultural identities. Having migrated in Roman times from the Caucasus, through Albania, to Venice, today, Cabernet Franc is also present in Maremma: fruit, spice, elegance and body are the qualities it conveys to Ampeleia. The quintessential Tuscan grape variety, Sangiovese, was already prized by the Etruscans, who named it "Sangue di Giove" - Jupiter's Blood: it imparts its strength and constancy to Ampeleia." - Winery
