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

Spring saw abundant rainfall, which restored the depleted aquifers from the dry 2020 vintage. Excessive rain in May and June required vigilance in the vineyard; however the vines avoided disease. High temperatures in August were followed by cooler nights in the latter part of August and September, encouraging aromatic development. The Barbera and Nebbiolo grapes reached excellent physiological and phenolic maturation; while the whites are recognised for their great freshness, elegance and intense aromatic profile. 2020 was an excellent vintage for Michele Chiarlo.

Vineyard

The grapes are grown in a vineyard facing east and southeast, which optimises the vine's 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.

Winemaking

The grapes were harvested at optimal maturity and the clusters were sorted and gently pressed. 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 being bottled.
