Michele Chiarlo Barolo Cannubi 2013

Powerful and full flavoured, this classic Barolo Cru has
baked fruits with hints of herbs, tobacco and leather
through to a dry, austere finish.


Producer Note
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” and with judicious use of oak they develop some wines for
ageing and some which can be enjoyed earlier. Their stunning collection of Barolo
and Barbera wines consistently receive 90+ points from Wine Advocate, James
Suckling and Wine Enthusiast.


Vintage
The 2013 vintage will be remembered for its dry, hot summer which affected many
Italian regions and produced some of the lowest yields for 50 years. Rain at the end
of August cooled things down, after the hot summer and a dry conditions during
Autumn allowed for a delayed harvest. The Nebbiolo grapes were picked in a
perfect condition, resulting in another excellent vintage. "A vintage with good
longevity” says Stefano Chiarlo, winemaker.


Vineyard
Cannubi is one of the most historical crus in Italy, a bottle of 1752 Cannubi still exists!
At the centre of the Cannubi Hill is Michele Chiarlo's vineyard. In collaboration with
the university of Changin, it is the first vineyard to be laid out into terraces here, in
order to gain the optimal potential from the terroir. Planted in 1990 on this south
facing slope of over 20%, this site enables the maximum light exposure and a perfect
maturation. The Helvation and Tortonian soils are greyish calcareous marl, with a
basic pH and a sand content of 30% . They are poor in organic substances but rich
in magnesium and iron trace elements.


Winemaking
Fermentation took place in 55 hectolitre oak barrels, with 20 days of grape skin
contact. Plunging of the cap was via the shower bathing method, during which the
temperature was maintained at 27° to 30°C. The wine was matured in average sized
oak casks for two years, followed by further refinement in the bottle of at least 15 to
16 months prior to release.
