"Intense aromas of mature stone fruit, apricot, honeysuckle and jasmine almost jump out of the glass. The vibrant, lightly foaming palate doles out juicy yellow peach, fresh apricot and a hint of sage alongside crisp acidity."

Michele Chiarlo's extensive vineyards stretch over more than 272 acres of Piedmont, including the hills surrounding Canelli, which offer an ideal microclimate for growing Moscato. Grapes are hand harvested from select vineyards with southern exposure and placed in pneumatic presses, followed by a slow fermentation using natural yeasts to a low level of alcohol. Unfermented Moscato grape must is then added to fine tune the sugar levels. Finally, the wine is immediately bottled in order to preserve the characteristically aromatic, sweet fruit fragrance of the Moscato Bianco grape. The result is a wine with such a delicate finesse that Michele Chiarlo named it Nivole after the Piedmontese word for clouds." - Importer
