The company Michele Chiarlo was founded in 1956 by Michele Chiarlo in Calamandrana, in the heart of Asti, producing the first vintage of Barolo in 1958. During the following years the winery, strictly family-run, grew considerably, thanks to important purchases in the best areas of the Langhe, winning land in Cerequio and Cannubi in 1987 and 1989. Today the company is spread over about 110 hectares of vineyards, 60 of which are owned and the remaining 50 with long-term leases, giving rise to just over one million bottles. The management is entrusted to the sons of Michele, Alberto and Stefano: the first deals with commercial development, while the second is winemaker. In the vineyards only native grapes are grown, concentrating on nebbiolo, barbera, cortese and muscat; in the winery the philosophy aims to enhance the characteristics that distinguish the vine contextualized in a given terroir, trying for red wines to use moderately the wood, refining the various crus according to the traditional method, in large barrels or tonneaux.More about the Winery

A golden brown white wine of Michele Chiarlo. On the nose, white fruits noticeable. It tasted like licorice.
