Michele Chiarlo Le Madri Roero Arneis 2020

A refreshing wine from the finest hillside vineyards in
Roero with intense aromas of aniseed and juniper and a
dry, salty and steely 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
2020 saw a mild and generally dry winter with occasional snow fall. April and May
experienced heavy rainfall, which delayed flowering, but restored the soil’s water
reserves. June was very hot and dry, fortunately two rainfall events in July brought
balance back to the vintage, which was at risk of drought. The first half of July saw
high maximum temperatures but this gave way to more autumnal weather resulting
in a classic, tardy harvest. 2019 produced low quantities, distinguished by
outstanding quality.


Vineyard
The Arneis grapes are grown in the finest hillside vineyards in Roero, Piedmont. The
small hillside plot, is situated on south facing hillside on the left bank of the Tanaro
River, directly across from the Barbaresco zone, on the river's right bank. Arneis is a
delicate variety that is now enjoying something of a revival having been rescued
from the verge of extinction. The vines thrive in the calcareous marl and sandy soils
with traces of clay that are found in this carefully selected plot.


Winemaking
Fermentation took place with natural yeasts in small temperature controlled stainless
steel vats at 16 to 18°C preserving the aromatic and perfumed characteristics of this
variety. The wine was refined in tank for a further three months on the lees, which
imparted texture and complexity to the wine, prior to being bottled.


Tasting Note
A refreshing wine from the finest hillside vineyards in Roero, delivering notes of peach,
tropical fruits and acacia flower. Elegant and silky on the palate with a balanced
and a dry, savoury finish.
