Michele Chiarlo Rovereto Gavi del Commune di Gavi 2021

From one of the best sub-zones in Gavi, this wine is
intensely fragrant with hints of peach and pear and
culminating in a spicy finish with white pepper and
mineral notes.
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.
Vineyard
Rovereto is a small, but privileged sub-zone of Gavi recognised as one of the best
microclimates for the production of the Cortese grape. The vines are grown in mostly
calcareous clay-marl soils of volcanic origin, which are rich in iron and magnesium. The
vines undergo a strict pruning programme and a green harvest to keep yields low and
concentrate the flavours in the grapes.
Winemaking
A proportion of the grapes underwent cold maceration before being pressed to obtain
greater aromatic expression. The grapes were gently pressed and then fermented in
small temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 16 to 18°C with natural yeasts from
the same vineyard. The wine rested on its fine lees in tank for four months, adding
texture and complexity to the resulting wine, followed by a further four months'
maturation in steel vats preserving the purity of fruit.
Tasting Note
From one of the best sub-zones in Gavi, the aromas are intense and elegant with hints
of white flowers, golden apples and mineral notes. Well structured and balanced on
the palate, with fragrant notes leading to incredible length on the finish.
