That is what it takes to produce the best
Over the last thirty years Michele Chiarlo has been patiently selecting vineyards with soil and exposures that give consistently high quality. The vineyard practices (severe pruning, cluster thinning to limit the crop, use of organic fertilisers and spraying with only the traditional Bordeaux mixture) also reflect the Chiarlo philosophy of quality. Grapes produced in this way cost a lot more, but that is what it takes to produce the best.
