Piemonte is beginning to feel like home from home now having been here 3 times in the last three months. This was another very special visit – this time to Michele Chiarlo with Stefano Chiarlo and one of Piemonte’s most prestigious vineyards, Cerequio in La Morra. This part of the vineyard is the much-prized south-west facing aspect so it gets the afternoon sun. His wines have the most beautiful melting texture and weight – with plenty of depth of flavour but never heavy or imposing – a wonderful weightless quality that glides across the palate. Stefano is himself a modest and unassuming personality in spite of all the great success they have achieved. Such a pleasure to meet you Stefano and to taste your lovely wines. Grazie mille @michelechiarlo and #WellCom
