Drink now or cellar for up to 15 years. No need to decant before serving.

Michele Chiarlo is regarded as one of Piedmont’s leading winemakers with some 60 hectares of vineyards which include many of the finest Barolo and Barbaresco crus. Michele founded the estate in 1956 with a vision of making exceptional Piedmontese wines that could be exported all over the globe, and today his two sons Alberto and Stefano continue the family legacy.

Wherever possible the family seek to work in harmony with nature, avoiding the use of pesticides and adhering to the principles of the VIVA Sustainable Wine scheme. This hard work seems to have paid off, with the family’s wines consistently earning scores in the high 90s. This particular Barolo was even previously selected as one of Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of the Year.

The fruit for this spectacular cuvee comes from the town of Barolo itself where the excellent terroir helps produce a traditional, well-structured wine with firm tannins and an elegant finish. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks followed by 24 months of ageing in oak barrels. The final step is a further 6 months or so of ageing in the bottle before it is ready for release. The first sip reveals a generous full body and well-developed structure which will help this wine age beautifully in the cellar. A great Barolo to enjoy alongside hearty dishes like roast pheasant, venison, lamb shanks, or a porcini risotto.
