The complexity and structure of a Piedmont wine

The estate

The eponymous Michele Chiarlo estate has been writing its reputation since 1956, when this oenologist decided to create his own estate and produce fine Piedmont wines.

His goal? To make the very most of the terroirs and grape varieties of Piedmont and to reveal their unique personality through constantly seeking excellence and carrying out a tailor-made vinification process.

Located in the village of Calamandrana, in the heart of the Barolo appellation, Michele Chiarlo's estate produces wines known for their inimitable style, that harmoniously combine aromatic complexity with supple and silky tannins. The Michele Chiarlo estate watches over an array of vineyards that spread over 110 hectares and thus make up a true treasure trove in the Langhe region in northern Italy.

The vineyard

Produced since 1988 and the first Cru to be recognised in the Barolo classification, Michele Chiarlo's Cerequio is a Barolo wine that stems from a 3-hectare vineyard located near the village of La Morra, in the heart of a beautiful amphitheatre. This south/southwest facing terroir is planted on a soil composed of calcareous marl and sand and is rich in iron and magnesium.

Vinification and ageing

The hand-picked grapes are fermented in 55 hl oak vats and fermented for 20 days. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in vats. This wine is aged for a minimum of 3 years, including 2 years in medium-sized oak barrels, followed by an additional bottle ageing before being sold.

The blend

Nebbiolo (100%).
