Michele Chiarlo

Written by Piero Pardini


The winery was founded by Michele Chiarlo in 1956 in Calamandrana, in the Monferrato area. The wines come from 150 ha of vineyards (70 owned, of which 10 in Barolo and Barbaresco and 20 in the Nizza area), located between Langhe, Monferrato and Gavi, within the most important crus of Piedmont: Cannubi and Cerequio in Barolo, Tenuta La Court in Castelnuovo Calcea, Asili and Faset in Barbaresco, Rovereto in Gavi.

The production philosophy is realized in rigorous choices in the vineyard as in the cellar, favoring the vocation, the historicity of the vineyards and excellence over quantity: never bottling the great crus in minor vintages, in which the quality is not considered satisfactory.
