Le Madri Roero Arneis DOCG 2015, Michele Chiarlo

Tasting notes

Straw yellow with green highlights. The aromas are intense and ample with notes of mint and apricot. On the palate it is fresh, elegant and silky with a fine, balanced and delicate finish.

Producer note

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.

Vineyard note

A small, south facing hillside plot on the left bank of the Tanaro River directly across from the Barbaresco zone which is on the river's right bank.

Soil

Calcareous marl and sand with traces of clay.

Vinification

Fermentation took place in small temperature controlled stainless steel vats with natural yeasts. The wine rested in tank for at least four months prior to being bottled.

Grape

Arneis 100%

Food match

An excellent partner to simple fish dishes, antipasti and asparagus.
