Winemaker Notes

The 2015 Michele Chiarlo Barolo Tortoniano shows layered aromas of rose petals, juniper berries and fine spices. On the palate the acidity is balanced and the tannins are silky, leading to a long finish.

This is a blend of Nebbiolo with about half of the fruit sourced in the Cerequio vineyard and the rest coming from other parcels, including some plantings in the Novello township. The Cerequio fruit itself comes from 30-year-old vines. This vintage shows a touch of extra sweetness and richness with blackberry, summer cherry and spice. The style achieved in the 2015 Barolo Tortoniano is an immediate and accessible one. This is a great choice for lovers of Italian wine who are only beginning to experiment with the great wines of Piedmont.

About Michele Chiarlo Winery

Since 1956, Michele Chiarlo has been making wine the essence of Piedmont, loving and valuing the most incredible wine-growing area in the world. We cultivate 110 hectares of vineyards between Langhe, Monferrato and Gavi, the best crus in full compliance with strict ecological criteria, the terroir and their expressions.

Michele, Stefano and Alberto Chiarlo continue to work following the tradition of a family winery with an international flavor. Attention to details, maniacal care of the vineyards, vinification in respect of the terroir and vines, craftsmanship of the work. Characteristics that make Michele Chiarlo one of the most important wineries in Piedmont, which believes exclusively in native vines and continues to invest in them.

The 55-acre Tenuta Aluffi is one of the most prestigious estates in the southern part of Asti, near the town of Nizza Monferrato, a choice area for exceptional-quality Barbera. Within Aluffi is the La Court estate, with excellent soils of magnesium-rich calcareous marl and a beneficial south-southwest exposure. This jewel of vineyard land receives the fastidious attention of the Chiarlo family so that its old vines produce extraordinary grapes. Following fermentation in large oak casks, the wine is aged in oak for a minimum of 12 months.
