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
Gavi shows clear, very marked fragrances, an excellent acidity and an alcohol content slightly lower than last year. Winemaking
Vinification and refinement: part of the grapes undergoes cold maceration, then a part of the must ferments in large oak barrels, another part in steel vats, where it remains on its own yeast for 6-10 months; another part in barriques, where it remains on its own yeast for 6-10 months, with weekly stirrings.
