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.
The grapes are grown in a vineyard facing east and south-east, to optimise the
exposure to the sun. The vines are planted in white soils which are mainly composed
of limestone and a small amount of clay, which help to impart elegance and
freshness to the resulting wine.
The grapes were harvested at optimal maturity and the clusters were sorted.
Fermentation took place in temperature controlled vats and rested in vat for three
months to retain the freshness and aromatic qualities of the Cortese variety, prior to

exotic fruits and white peach. It is harmonious and refreshing on the palate with a
pleasing roundness and an elegant finish.
