(From 2011 Vintage)
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.
Tasting notes: Medium bodied and robust with rich, ripe fruit on the nose and an elegant palate.Pairs well with chicken, mushrooms, pork and grilled or roasted red meats.
Wine & Spirits(From 2007 Vintage) Chiarlo's 2006 Barbera d'Asti Superiore Le Orme is a delicious, fragrant Barbera. Made in a medium-bodied style, it offers notable harmony in its ripe red fruit, minerals and spices. Silky, refined tannins round out this terrific effort, which is a steal for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2010.
