More info

Michele Chiarlo was born in the Monferrato region of Piemonte where his family has grown grapes for over 5 generations. In 1956 he decided to start a small winery in Calamandrana, a small village nestling in some of Monferrato's finest hillside vineyards. Armed with enthusiasm and an iron will, he worked hard to make the best wines possible. After many years his business finally started to expand. He now owns 50 hectares of vineyards situated in the most prestigious areas and produces top quality Barolos such as Cerequio and Cannubi and a wonderful Barbera d'Asti such as his cru "La Court". He has built a cellar in Barolo to age the wines. In Gavi, he has built a modern winery near the Cortese vineyards where he grows the grapes for what many consider one of Italy's most outstanding white wines.

Chiarlo's Barolo Cerequio, Countacc! and La Court Barbera d'Asti have won many awards worldwide and are recognized as being amongst Italy's top red wines. In the 2003 Italian Wine Guide "Gambero Rosso", Barolo Cerequio 1998 gained the top "3 Bicchieri" award as did the 1997, 1996 and 1995 in previous editions. In the 2005 edition, 2001 La Court Barbera d'Asti was awarded the "3 Bicchieri" as was the 2000 in the previous year. Thanks to this recognition, the company has been awarded the much sought-after "Stella" - a star which the Guide bestows on wineries that have received the "3 Bicchieri" ten times.
