A complex and full bodied wine with inviting aromas of deep fruits, rose petals, juniper berries and hint of fine spice. The palate shows a wonderful harmony, with silky tannins and remarkable elegance and persistence. Michele Chiarlo is one of Piedmont’s most prestigious winemakers. Fermentation took place in temperature controlled tanks with 17 to 18 days’ maceration on the skins. A gentle ‘shower system’ of submerging the cap was used during fermentation which took place at between 27 to 32°C. Malolactic conversion took place in stainless steel tanks. The wine was then aged for two years in oak casks, followed by a further 12 months in bottle prior to release.
