Michele Chiarlo 2008
External Reviews for Michele Chiarlo
An enticing red, bursting with juicy blackberry, black currant and spice flavors, accented by violet and mineral, with a vibrant structure that provides focus and persistence. Drink now through 2012. - According to the Wine Spectator
A simple, quaffing red wine that you don't have to think about. Plum and blackberry fruit, a hint of spice and tangy acids make this a good match for lively tomato-based dishes.
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.
WS 90pts. - According to the Wine Spectator: An enticing red, bursting with juicy blackberry, black currant and spice flavors, accented by violet and mineral, with a vibrant structure that provides focus and persistence. Drink now through 2012.
Good things come in little packages and this half bottle Moscato d'Asti is hugely satisfying. It boasted the most crystalline luminosity of all the wines I tasted and among the thickest, foamiest froths. I also loved the nose with limestone and peach notes backed by characteristic muskiness.
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. - Winery
