Color: Garnet with brilliant luminous hues. Nose: Inviting, complex with notes of rose petals , juniper berries and fine spices. Taste: Ample, good structure with a silky texture of tannins which already give a surprising harmony to the juvenile stage of this Barolo. Remarkable elegance and persistence

Lovely scents of rose, violet, perfumed berry, cake spice and a whisper of menthol lead the way on this fragrant red. Savory and precise, the linear luminous palate doles out crushed raspberry, juicy Marasca cherry, licorice and clove. It's well balanced, with fresh acidity and polished tannins. Drink 2020-2028.

This is Michele Chiarlo's entry-level Barolo that sees fruit sourced from the Cerequio cru. The wine is named after the calcareous marl clay soils of sedimentary marine origin that characterize this site. The soils are from the Tortonian period (nine million years ago). The 2013 Barolo Tortoniano reveals a dry and mineral-rich bouquet. Those aromas are enhanced by bright tones of dried raspberry and cherry.
