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.
It comes from vineyards facing east and southeast, planted on white soil mainly composed of limestone and a limited presence of clay, thus capable of producing wines of great elegance and freshness with well balanced acidity, which makes them extremely delicate, smooth and very pleasant.
Fermentation in vats for three months before bottling.
