Michele Chiarlo Gavi


Michele Chiarlo founded his winery in 1956. From the beginning he has overseen every step of the winemaking process at his estate in Calamandrana Asti. Born into a family of grape growers going back 5 generations, he can remember when things weren’t so great in the region. During the 50’s Piedmont was largely unrecognized and impoverished. After some tough decades, it would eventually become Italy’s most prestigious DOCG. Distinctly Michele chooses to farm Barbera vines in some of his best vineyards. Unlike Nebbiolo, the grape of Barolo, Barbera makes wines that are meant for everyday drinking. Today with the help of his son Stefano Chiarlo and winemaker Gianni Meleni, Michele produces wines in 4 different areas (Barolo, Barbaresco, Asti and Gavi) from 4 different varietals (Nebbiolo, Barbera, Cortese and Moscato).

The Michele Chiarlo Gavi is made from 100% Cortese harvested from vineyards close to the Ligurian Sea. Elegant with fine structure, it has notes of golden apple, lemons, acacia flower, and bread crust.
