Michele Chiarlo Barolo 'Cerequio' 2012

Cerequio is one of the most esteemed Barolo "crus" of the region. It is a single vineyard of just three hectares located on the prestigious hillside between the villages of La Morra and Barolo. Made from 100% Nebbiolo and produced in limited quantities the Michele Chiarlo Barolo Cerequio was matured for a minimum of three years. It was aged for two years in average sized oak casks before further refinement in the bottle of one year prior to release. Aromas of mature fruits are complemented by hints of wild mint, eucalyptus, herbs and fine spice. Rich on the palate with a tightly woven structure of fine tannins, it shows outstanding elegance and harmony from this truly unique Barolo cru. Delicious with game or fillet steak.
