External Review by Great Wines Direct:

Robert Parker 92 Points Michele Chiarlo was born in the Monferrato region of Piemonte where his family has grown grapes for over 5 generations. In 1956 he decided to start a small winery in Calamandrana, a small village nestling in some of Monferrato's finest hillside vineyards. He now owns 50 hectares of vineyards situated in the most prestigious areas and produces top quality Barolos such as Cerequio and Tortoniano. Michele has built a cellar in Barolo to age the wines. Barolo Tortoniano has won many awards worldwide and is recognised as being amongst Italy's top red wines.
