A Quo” is Chiarelotto’s introduction to his lineup, combining 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Montepulciano, and smatterings of Sangiovese, Marselan and Alicante Bouschet (this last one a teinturier—a red grape with red pulp—that lends color and depth). It is aged four months in used French oak casks.
“A Quo” is a deep, nearly opaque ruby at its core with garnet reflections at the rim, with aromas of black plum, black cherry, cassis, lavender, dried herbs, and a hint of tobacco. It is simultaneously juicy and firm, lush and elegant—rather than go for an inky blockbuster, Chiarelotto went for supple texture and lifted perfume.
