Michele Chiarlo Barbera d'Asti Superiore Le Orme 2015
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barbera d'Asti|
Wine Review OnlineBarbera is often a “go-to” wine for Italian food because its inherent acidity keeps it juicy and lively throughout the meal. The difficulty is that the spectrum of Barbera is enormous, from astringent and hard to swallow to captivating. Put Chiarlo’s Le Orme in the latter category. More polished and elegant than many Barbera, it’s still juicy and vigorous. Try it the next time you’re having pasta with a tomato mushroom sauce.
Wine EnthusiastRipe black-skinned fruit, dark spice, underbrush and roasted coffee aromas lead the nose of this wine, along with an earthy note of game. The rounded, chewy palate is loaded with black cherry, black raspberry, baking spice and truffle flavors set against fresh acidity and polished tannins.
Wine SpectatorRich, vibrant and smooth, this red evokes black cherry, black currant and almond flavors, with a lingering aftertaste of fruit and spice. Drink now through 2020. 40,000 cases made.
