Michele Chiarlo Barbera d'Asti Superiore Le Orme 2017
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barbera d'Asti|
This juicy red opens with aromas of ripe dark-skinned berry, star anise and a whiff of forest floor. Rounded, chewy and fresh, the savory palate doles out mature Marasca cherry, cranberry, licorice and a hint of truffle alongside smooth tannins. Enjoy through 2022.
The Michele Chiarlo 2017 Barbera d'Asti le Orme (packaged in a screw cap bottle) is a light and informal expression to order at the local trattoria or pizzeria. The wine is tight and lean, with a pretty bouquet of wild cherry, dried blackberry and sweet almond. The wine is mild in terms of extraction and subdued in terms of the grape's naturally high acidity. These qualities make it so food friendly.
