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.
