Since 1956, the Piedmont winemaker Michele Chiarlo has foreshadowed the continuing quest for quality on the part of so many of Italy’s conscientious producers. From the beginning, the Chiarlo family winery has made superior Barberas and high quality Barolos that today are consistently among the most renowned expressions of these wines. Now, additional varieties help carry the firm’s reputation for purity of grape variety and terroir.
At the production and vineyard level, where quality begins, Michele Chiarlo has for 30 years pursued an endless search for control over the finest vineyard sites in each of the zones from which he produces his wines. His crown jewel among these is the vineyard of Fornace di Tassarolo in the Rovereto area of Gavi, a small parcel planted in 1910 which yields a brilliant and intense Gavi of exquisite refinement.
