(2009 Vintage) Ruby red with violet hues. Elegant, with good intensity - you can feel the fruits of berries, mint leaves. Well structured, fruity and dry.

    (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.
