Nice easy red wine for the price.
Decent wine, but leaves a bit of a harsh burning feeling in the back of the throat.
Strong wood spice on the nose, as well as espresso, dark chocolate and black cherry. On the palate, it's tart and acidic. Flavors of blackberry, plum and pomegranate, all fresh. Hints of flowers. Very youthful, needs more time to relax. 3/10/12
Sweet blackberry, plum and pomegranate fruit is fresh and vibrant as this red unfolds ... Drink now through 2018. -BS

Scents of tar and truffles introduce this darkly fruited barbera. The supple texture yields sweeter fruit in the end, black and rosy, with a hint of honeyed pear. For grilled sausages.
Barbera d’Asti was the first wine to be produced by Michele Chiarlo and as such, it remains his greatest passion.
Pure, ripe plum and strawberry fruit flavors underscored by a crisp acidic note and a hint of earth mark this charming, succulent wine, set in a supple texture supported by sweet, soft tannins.
