A Quo means "the point from which things start." Fabio has many more vineyards in production now and, rather than increasing production of his three established cuvees, he's decided to use the extra fruit to make a stricter selection for Eneo, Nardo, and Gabbro. This leaves a lot of fruit for the new wine, A Quo. It's aged in used barrels for 3 months before finishing in tank, and bears an uncanny resemblance to early Eneo vintages. It's a winner.
Chiarelotto purchased the estate in 1998, after years in academia working as an historian. While the estate had achieved renown under the former owners, Chiarelotto believed it held the potential to take quality even higher. Looking to the future, Chiarelotto decided to drastically restructure (i.e., cut back) the vines in early 1999. As the estate emerges from those changes, his healthier vineyards and growing understanding of the wines has positioned this estate to achieve even greater levels of quality.
