An easy drinking and refreshing wine with flavours of pear and with a vibrant lemon peel finish.
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.
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
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.
Bright and modern, this is a floral and fruity Gavi showcasing appealing aromas of exotic fruits and white peach. It is harmonious and refreshing on the palate with a pleasing roundness and an elegant finish.
This is a great match for grilled king prawns with a honey and lemon dressing; salmon and vegetable tempura.
