Concentrated aromas of peach and apricot with a hint of melon and sage. Clean, light and delicate with a silky texture and a lingering finish.
Michele Chiarlo is one of Piedmont's truly great winemakers. The family owns 60 hectares of vineyards in three of the classic growing areas - Langhe, Monferrato and Gavi and also have access to another 50 hectares through their long-term relationship with growers. Michele has insisted on total quality since his first vintage in 1956, an ethos which his sons Stefano and Alberto adopt today. The Chiarlo style is highly elegant, they make complex wines that can age for decades but above all reflect their provenance - some of the finest vineyard sites in Piedmont.
Mostly chalky with traces of lime.
The grapes were gently pressed. Partial fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks until the alcohol level reaches 5%. The temperature is then lowered to 0°C to stop the fermentation and also to retain the natural sweetness and freshness of the Moscato grape. The wine is then filtered and sterile bottled.
An iconic dessert wine, try with soft chestnut cream in crispy waffles
