Michele Chiarlo 2004
Shows superb clarity and definition with lovely notes of dark raspberries black cherries earthiness menthol spices and toasted oak. This is a wine that is all about precision and granularity in its detail. The tannins build on the finish. There is lovely richness underneath that will emerge gracefully over time.
Not bad, not as good as the above Barbera
The 2001 vintage was always a favorite, eager to find the next great vintage.
Pleasant surprise. Great QPR on this lightly sparkling, honeyed wine. Not unctuous or overly sweet, but has that great peachy-appley sweetness that makes for a great dessert all on its own. Low alcohol (7%).
2008 vintage well balanced tannins & acid, great mixed berry fruit & superb taste. Great with Pasta dishes
Light but solid moscato flavors, light apricot, flame grape with a nice sparkle, very smooth, low acid. all without going over the top.
This was given to my wife and I as a gift. After our second son was born, this was the only bottle of wine in the house and having gone 9 months without any, she wanted a glass. Though according to snooth, we opened this a year early, it was fantastic. Great color, very smooth with a bold nose. It had a 'smoky' finish which was pleasant. I am not a coin-o-saur so this review may not help many, but for me, it was fantastic, and worth the wait.
Just love it!! :-)

This exhibits aromas of tar and dried rose with hints of strawberry. Full-bodied with good concentration of fruit velvety tannins and a long finish. Balanced and solid. Best after 2011. 550 cases made.
Made in an accessible feminine style. Medium in body the wine flows from the glass with layers of sweet perfumed fruit showing notable balance and harmony. The wine closes beautifully with an inviting long finish.

Wine Tasting NotesLe Monache is a wine of explosive berry fruit perfume, with an elegant, fresh palate and silky, round texture. It is intended to represent a modern interpretation of the wines of Piedmont, a pleasing and elegant wine easily paired to a variety of foods at a moderate price.
Wine Tasting NotesThis elegantly structured wine shows pure, high toned red berry and currant flavors and aromas with nuances of violets, spice and chocolate around a restrained acidic core supported by refined tannins.
