(Courtesy of franklinmatters.com)-Did you know Franklin had a wine club? Since 1956 Michele Chiarlo is synonym with the wines of Piemonte. At a very young age Michele started to travel to showcase with unlimited passion what Piemonte could produce. With Michele's guidance now his sons Stefano and Alberto have taken over different roles and are carrying on their father's passion. The story of Michele Chiarlo as a wine producer starts with Barbera and specifically from Asti but quickly moves to cover all the top areas of Piemonte, Gavi, Barolo, Barbaresco and more.
The philosophy at the winery is to produce classic wines of terroir with the most up to date know how and still vivid passion.
