  • A full, traditional and earthy Barolo, well structured and gamey with hints of balsamic and leather through to a dry, firm finish.A complex and full-bodied Barolo with inviting aromas of deep fruits, rose petals, juniper berries, and a hint of fine spice. The palate shows a wonderful harmony, with silky tannins and remarkable elegance and persistence.

Fermentation took place in temperature controlled tanks with 17 to 18 days maceration on the skins. A gentle 'shower system' of submerging the cap was used during fermentation which took place at between 27 to 32°C. Malolactic conversion took place in stainless steel tanks. The wine was then aged for two years in oak casks, followed by a further 12 months in bottle prior to release.

A complex and full bodied Barolo with inviting aromas of deep fruits, rose petals, juniper berries and hint of fine spice. The palate shows a wonderful harmony, with silky tannins and remarkable elegance and persistence.

Winery

 The vineyard sits on a southeast-to-south westerly orientation and the vines are trained according to the Guyot method. The vines are thinned during the summer months to control the health and vigor of the vine. The soils are from the Tortonian geological area of La Mora and Barolo, which is characterized by sedimentary clay and Sant'Agata marl interspersed with grey-blue sandstone. A significant presence of microelements specifically magnesium and manganese enhances the soil's complexity. The grapes are manually harvested at optimum maturity.

Michele Chiarlo is one of Piedmont's most prestigious winemakers, producing outstanding wines from some of the most exceptional sites in Piedmont, including Barolo’s world-famous Cannubi and Cerequio vineyards. Founded in 1956 by Michele Chiarlo and now run by his sons Alberto and Stefano, the Chiarlo philosophy “is to capture the terroir” from their sustainably cultivated vineyards, which hold the VIVA certification. With a judicious use of oak, they hand-craft a selection of wines suitable for aging and some that can be enjoyed earlier. Their stunning collection of Barolo and Barbera wines consistently receives 90+ points from Wine Advocate, James Suckling and Wine Enthusiast.
