AWE blind tasting - sweet and candied nose, root beer, some baked goods, extracted, heavy, but deep and intense with chewy, dark, opaque fruit, this might just come around as it has a lovely minerality that really cuts through the huge fruit and finishes with intense cooling menthol and dark, earthy note, even a hint of dark tobacco on the moderately long finish 86-87

On the nose I found white flowers, almond skins, browned butter and minerals. On the palate, it was medium bodied with zippy acidity, showing lemon with minerals and rocks. The finish was staying yet fresh. I was pleasantly surprised by this 6-year old Gavi.

90 points. Sweet red fruit and bramble bush tones open up on the aroma. There is an exceptional dark chocolate and almond toffee quality running through it, with a slight note of caramel. A spin in the glass reveals some slightly herbal notes, a charred wood aroma, and a touch of chalk. The palate opens with raspberry juice, a tinge of citrus, and some light tangerine flavors. Chocolate and nuts show through on the mid palate, with some dried herb and peppercorn leading into a finish of blood orange, cacao powder, and shrub brush. This wine is incredibly bright and fresh, with a nice ripe citrus and berry component that gives the palate some real substance. The delicate cacao powder tannins and the soft earthy tones add a nice amount of definition, creating a very interesting, fun to drink, wine that would be very food friendly. A very solid wine for the price, and an excellent place to start when exploring this producer and this varietal.

Earthy nose. Old world style. Opened up after about 30 minutes. Medium bodied, smooth, complex finish. Paired well with grilled chicken wrap.

Like most wines from the Piemonte region, Michele Chiarlo's Barbera d'Asti is rich with its notes of tobacco and cherry, and pairs extremely well with any stuffed pasta or gnocchi--especially truffle or ricotta cheese-filled pastas. It's also relatively easy to find here in the U.S. and well-priced, and is a wine that my friends in Piemonte regularly drink themselves--for me, that is always a ringing endorsement.

A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2005 Michele Chiarlo Barolo Cerequio 750ml

Wine Spectator Wonderful aromas of sliced plum with hints of dried flowers. This is full-bodied with spice truffle and berry character. Very long and rich yet soft and beautiful. This is Chiarlo's basic Barbaresco renamed. Best after 2012. Score: 91. James Suckling September 30 2008.

Wine Tasting NotesPure, 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.

Tortoniano shows very exciting results thanks to the wine's evident softness and richness. Aromas recall sweet Christmas spice, black cherry, licorice and rose petal but the wine really picks up speed in the mouth where you will experience a blast of chocolate and espresso. Drink 2015-2020. - M.L. ** SOLD OUT **

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The estate's 2005 Barolo Tortoniano offers lovely depth in an essentially mid-weight style. Crushed raspberries, flowers, licorice and spices are melded together in a finely-knit frame of notable elegance. This beautifully balanced, accessible Barolo should continue to drink nicely for another decade or so. A long, refreshing finish makes it difficult to resist a second taste. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021. (Oct 2009)
