Michele Chiarlo Gavi di Gavi 'Rovereto' 2016

Piedmont, Italy - 2016

Price £18.99

Michele Chiarlo is one of Piedmont's truly great winemakers. The family owns 60 hectares of vineyard in three of the classic growing areas. 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.

From one of the best sub-zones in Gavi, the aromas are complex, full and persistent with hints of grapefruit, white flowers and anise. In the mouth it is dry, balanced and fragrant with a silky texture and incredible length on the finish.
