"In collaboration with the University of Milano, Il Chiosso uses the "Lotta Integrata" approach in the vineyards, eliminating the use of insecticides in favor of natural pest management. In the winery, the use of additives and preservatives is limited, and inert gases such as nitrogen and argon are used throughout the winemaking process in order to capture as much nuance from the Alto Piemonte terroir as possible. The color is deep ruby red with garnet red shades. Intense notes of fresh fruit with a pronounced background of spice. Dry, excellent structure with balanced tannins. this wine pairs best with red meats, roasted or boiled, and medium aged cheeses."~Winery Notes

Il Chiosso

View all from Il Chiosso
Il Chiosso"Founded in 2007, Il Chiosso is the product of decades of the Arlunno and Cambieri families' experience in the vineyards of Piedmont. In high Piedmont, il chiosso refers to a vineyard bordered by a stone wall. This young brand took on this name, which happens to also be the name of its prized vineyard. Three generations of these families have worked the vineyards of the area, producing wine privately. Dedicated to regional wines, they have patiently acquired plots over the years as they became available, eventually allowing them to officially produce wines from the historically important crus of the zone: Gattinara DOC, Ghemme DOCG and Fara DOC. High Piedmont is very geologically diverse, with earth ranging from rock, moraines, sand and porphyry, to acidic soils rich in magnesium, iron and potassium. Il Chiosso cultivates this varied environment with the greatest respect for the natural rhythms that give the final wines their great nuance. To this end, Il Chiosso tries to limit its impact on the vineyards as much as possible. In place of insecticides, they use antagonist insects to combat harmful insect populations. The greatest care is taken in the pruning of the vines all the way to the bottling of the wines. In the winery, each step of production is marked by expert controls to optimize the quality of the wines. The use of additives and preservatives is limited, and inert gases such as nitrogen and argon are used throughout the winemaking process in order to capture as much nuance from the high Piedmont terroir as possible."

"Il Chiosso Ghemme 2009; 13% alc.Color: rust and brick red with salmon edge; transparent throughout. Very good legs.Nose: old wood, leather, tar, baked black cherry saturated cake. Pine and forest floor. Black licorice.Palate: Big tannins upon entry followed by woodsy strawberry, boysenberry, raspberry and cherry. Long with great structural acidity and tannins. Some notions of a fine Cognac without the heat. A stunning Nebbiolo. Barolo of this quality can’t be had for twice the price. Drink now through 2030."
