Food Pairings for Michele Chiarlo
Editorial Reviews for Michele Chiarlo
AWE blind tasting - a bit jammy on the nose with lots of cola character, sweet woodiness, root beer, biter herbs, jammy root beer, cool and seamless if monolithic with prominent tannins backing nice bitter cherry fruit, uncomplicated if impressively structured, nice fruit fights to get out on the backend, finishes fairly strong with really nice fruit but bit short, 85-86
Candied, seeds, terrible nose, oaky water, sweet entry, shallow, flaccid, bitter tannins, a mess. (<70pts)
Cooked fruit, chocolate, here we get some tootsie roll, lots of sickly sweet fruit here with marshmallow tones and some cola, rich, fruity, nice extracty raspberry fruit, wood tannin on finish is dry and raw,
AWE blind tasting - well integrated spicy wood tones, light cherry and rose, a bit of clay, soft and simple, nice, simple, easy, some fruit, some spice, neither good nor bad 83-84
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
Leather and sulphur dominate the nose along with hints of fish sauce and burnt meat. Graceless and extracted in the mouth this is a bit medicinal but otherwise mostly detail-lees and heavy on the palate with a burning, oily finish. 70pts
Very pretty on the nose, with aromas of soft cherry, fresh herbs, shoe polish and braised fennel accented with hints of roses and iron. Silky on entry, this shows fine balance with a nice transparent core of wild cherry fruit accented with hints of leather and medicinal herbs. Rather light on its feet, this tapers off on a soft finish rich soil tones, if a touch short but rather elegant. Some harder tannins do appear on the finish, but they are well buffered on the palate, boding well for several years of positive development. Very finely textured. 87 points
This wine is slightly sparkling and has a excellent floral aroma of orange blossom, spring flowers and strawberries. On the palate it is a smooth mix of violets, apricot, berries, and summer fruit. It has a crisp, clean finish that is refreshing and well rounded.
Nice yellow color, but there seem to be tiny particles floating. Very "fresh" outdoorsy nose--some floral hints. VERY FRUITY on the inital palate--citrusy, quite tart. Very light-died. Very refreshing. US$14.99 at Total Wines
The nose showed enticing notes of sea air, lavender and floral notes. On the palate, it was refreshing with flavors of apple and minerals, which carried into the finish with a spritz of lime and mouthwatering acidity.
Drink Now- The 2010 Barbera d’Asti Superiore Le Orme is an attractive, fleshy wine loaded with class and personality, especially within its price range. Clean, mineral notes frame expressive dark fruit in this vibrant, highly appealing Barbera. This is a highly representative example of the taut style of Barbera that emerges from Asti. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015. Score: 88. —Antonio Galloni, October 2012. @thewinebuyer
Достаточно обычное белое вино. Не стоит своих $20. Неплохо пошло с козьим сыром, но не более. Ничего запоминающегося
this is my favorite wine & to me it's expensive because you may get two glasses out of one bottle....it's so good you will want more & it's not potent so getting drunk is not an option unless you smell liquer and get drunk....it is sweet, subtle, has carbonation like a champagne, and a very slight hint of dryness wine has....to me this is the perfect wine!
You cannnot be wrong usually with a Gavi but never with Michele Chiarlo!!!! Probably the best Gavi............and in addition there is a lot more to discover about the winery and its production, for instance the reds!!!! Outstanding
External Reviews for Michele Chiarlo
Michele Chiarlo was born in the Monferrato region of Piemonte where his family has grown grapes for over 5 generations. In 1956 he decided to start a small winery in Calamandrana, a small village nestling in some of Monferratos finest hillside vineyards. Armed with enthusiasm and an iron will, he worked hard to make the best wines possible. His 'Le Vigne di Chiarlo Rosso Monferrato' has won many awards worldwide and his wines are now recognised as being amongst Italys top red wines. Thanks to this recognition, the company has been awarded the much sought-after Stella star which the Italian Wine Guide bestows on wineries that have received the 3 Bicchieri ten times. Grapes : 50% Barbera, 40% Nebbiolo, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon Region: Italy / Piedmont / Monferrato DOC Maker : Stefano Chiarlo and Gianni Meleni Notes : Superb, surprisingly fruity nose of great breadth and freshness; there are evident notes of woodland fruit and sweet spices, harmoniously matched. A great impact,with optimum roundness, freshness and pleasantness, it possesses extremely well integrated, delicate tannins. Serve : At 16 - 17C Perfect for pasta dishes (with meat sauces, tomato sauces, and fish), it goes very well with cold meats (chicken and rabbit) and noble cold cuts (ham,Tyrol smoked ham, fine salami and cold pork) ABV : 13% Suitable for Vegetarians
Exuberant aromas of tropical fruit and honeysuckle blossoms mark this fresh, lightly sparkling wine and carry into a palate of ripe melon and mango flavors finishing on a delicate sweet note underscored by bright acidity
The wine shows citrus and mineral aromas and flavors on a palate of medium body and bright acidity before a lengthy finish. - Winery
The 2011 Barbera d’Asti Superiore Le Orme displays a more pungent and slightly spicier aromatic quality. This would be a terrific wine to drink with gnocchi and melted gorgonzola cheese because the fresh acidity can slice straight through the fattiness of the dish. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2015.
Rich, this displays black cherry, raspberry and tobacco flavors, with firm tannins underneath. Powerful and heady, with moderate length. Drink now through 2018.
A brilliant ruby-red wine with an intense yet airy, vinous bouquet and a medium-bodied, bone-dry robustness that is exceptionally pleasant on the palate. The best vintages, with age, tend to garnet in color, and show a velvety, harmonious quality of considerable elegance.
This classic expression of the Cortese grape is delicate and refined, with lean, subtle pear and white fruit flavors and a fragrance of acacia blossoms offset by notes of almonds. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
Wine Tasting Notes 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.
