Winemaker Notes

The wine shows layered aromas and flavors of mint, red fruit and spices. There palate shows bright acidity and silky tannins before a long finish. This wine is a superlative pairing for roasts, game and hard cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator
Fresh, elegant and detailed, this red offers cherry, strawberry, floral, licorice, tar and tobacco aromas and flavors. Firms up on the long finish, remaining fresh and complex. Best from 2018 through 2033.
JS 93
James Suckling
Wow. This shows such a wonderful, complex fruit character of dried berries, lemon rind and ash. Some cloves, too. Full body with silky tannins and a fruity finish.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Barolo Tortoniano is aged in large oak cask for two years and shows an impressive level of fruit boldness and extraction. Although the style is plush and -modern- on the Barolo continuum, Tortoniano is a seamless expression with supple tannins and fresh acidity that meld into one beautiful whole. Drink: 2016-2025.
Rating: 92+
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Aromas suggest subtle oak, vanilla and espresso with whiffs of leather and balsam. The bright palate offers candied red cherry accented with white pepper, nutmeg, clove, coffee bean and grilled sage alongside bracing tannins. Drink 2018–2038.

Michele Chiarlo Winery Video

The wine producing firm of Michele Chiarlo was founded in 1956 by the sole and present owners, Michele and Giuseppina Chiarlo. Son of over seven generations of esteemed wine growers, Mr. Chiarlo is today one of the most respected producers of the fine wines of Piedmont and a leading figure in its viticultural industry.

At the production and vineyard level, where quality begins, Michele Chiarlo has for thirty years pursued an endless search for control over the finest vineyard sites in each of the zones from which he produces his wines. Perhaps the crown jewel among these is the vineyard of Fornace di Tassarolo in the Rovereto area of Gavi, a small parcel planted in 1910 which yields a brilliant and intense Gavi of exquisite refinement. He also has long-term agreements with the owners of two spectacular vineyards in the Castiglione Falleto and Serralunga crus of Barolo, from which he produces Barolo Riserva Rocche di Castiglione and Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda di Serralunga. In addition to these contracts, he has also purchased the Antico Podere Averame in the Cerequio cru of Barolo, considered one of the zone's finest Nebbiolo vineyards; and an estate, also in Barolo in the cru of Cannubi, which due to its extremely sharp gradient had never been cultivated. With considerable capital investment, this vineyard has been terraced and brought into production, the first time such a project has ever been undertaken in Piedmont.

In 1995, Michele Chiarlo acquired the estate of Azienda Agricola Aluffi in Castelnuovo Calcea, considered to the most beautiful and prestigious property in the heart of the classic Barbera d'Asti zone. The estate is comprised of two separate vineyard holdings, La Court and Il Castello, with a total area of 62 acres of which 50 are planted in Barbera vines, quite extensive for this area. The principally southwest and easterly-exposed slopes support superb, calcium and mineral rich soils which are of ideal composition for the production of great Barbera d'Asti.

Michele Chiarlo directly manages or personally oversees every aspect in the production of his wines. Eminently qualified through the expertise acquired through his involvement with the company under his father, he also holds a degree from the prestigious School of Enology at Alba. His ceaseless innovation, both in production and in marketing, has gained him the respesct of his industry.
