Producer Note
Michele Chiarlo is one of Piedmont's truly great winemakers. The family owns 60
hectares of vineyard in three of the classic growing areas - Langhe, Monferrato and
Gavi and have access to a further 50 hectares through long-term relationships with
their 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.
Vintage
2013 will be remembered as having the latest harvest in the past 20 years. A cold,
but average winter, and low temperatures in Spring, resulted in delays in the
vegetative cycle. A warm June gave rise to a perfect bud set, with excellent
conditions in August which allowed or constant ripening. Harvesting for Nebbiolo
took place in October, with perfectly ripe and healthy grapes. A vintage moderate in
alcohol and with extremely positive characteristics for the red wines.
Vineyard
Produced in the municipality of Barbaresco, the grapes for this wine come from the
Cascina Minuto C.E.G, which includes approximately three hectares of Nebbiolo
purely for the production of Barbaresco wine. Situated on a notable slope, the
vineyard has excellent exposure to the sun. The vines are grown in a bluish-grey
calcareous marl soil, with clay, which is poor in organic substances but rich in
calcium and magnesium.
Winemaking
Fermentation and maceration of the grapes took place in temperature controlled
tanks with daily pumping-over. The wine was matured for a minimum of 18 months in
large French oak barrels followed by a further six months in bottle.
Tasting Note
Rivalling Barolo as Piedmont's best red wine, this garnet coloured wine has delicate,
complex and refined aromas, with hints of green peppercorns, spice and bitter
almonds layered upon the rich berried fruits. On the palate, it is silky and elegant
with soft, savoury flavours and spicy tones on the finish.
Serving Suggestion
Pairs well with roasted red meats, game and mushroom risotto.
