dark liquorice and a savoury, long finish.
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.
Vineyard
From the Tortonian geological area of La Mora and Barolo, which is characterised by
sedimentary clay, Sant'Agata marl interspersed with grey-blue sandstone.
Winemaking
Fermentation took place in temperature controlled tanks with maceration on the
skins. The wine was then aged for two years in 700 litre oak tonneaux, followed by a
further 10 months in bottle prior to release.
Tasting Note
From the Nebbiolo grape grown around the town of Barolo, this wine is full and
complex with a rich and intense aroma reminiscent of almonds, juniper and anise.
Well structured with earthy notes and firm tannins through to an elegantly long finish.
Serving Suggestion
This wine has the intensity and structure to match richly flavoured foods such as
ragout of rabbit and flavoursome game dishes.
