Garnet red with orangey hues. The wine has delicate, complex and refined aromas with hints of green peppercorns, spices and bitter almonds. On the palate, it is elegant with red berries and spice notes.
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.
Bluish-grey calcareous marl with a small percentage of clay. Poor in organic substances but rich in minerals.
Maceration in temperature controlled tanks with daily pumping-over. Aged for a minimum of 18 months in large French oak barrels followed by a further 6 months in bottle.
Roast red meats and game.
