|Name||Michele Chiarlo Palás Moscato d'Asti|
Michele Chiarlo is one of Piedmont's truly great winemakers. The family owns 60 hectares of vineyard in three of the classic growing areas - Langhe, Monferrato and Gavi and have access to a further 50 hectares through long-term relationships with their growers. Michele has insisted on total quality since his first vintage in 1956, an ethos which his sons Stefano and Alberto adopt today. The Chiarlo style is highly elegant, they make complex wines that can age for decades but above all reflect their provenance - some of the finest vineyard sites in Piedmont.
Within the traditional Moscato cultivating areas, the best plots have been identified for the production of the Muscat grapes. The soils are sandy and of sedimentary marine origin. The vines are planted with an east or southeastern orientation and are trained according to the Guyot method. The harvest takes place manually.
