Michele Chiarlo Barbera d'Asti Superiore Le Orme 2016

SKU 271



Michele Chiarlo sources grapes from strictly selected Barbera vineyards with excellent exposure to produce a superb, balanced wine. The choice vineyards are in the southern area of Asti province, especially the hills around Nizza Monferrato. Temperature controlled maceration and fermentation on the skins yields the dark, rich color that is typical of great Barberas. The wine is aged in large French oak casks before release.

Wine SpectatorThere is a serious side to this fruity red, with stiff, dusty tannins putting the brakes on the plum and cherry jam flavors. Accents of earth and chocolate add depth. Drink now through 2021. 35,000 cases made.
