Michele Chiarlo 2009
Medium bodied, bright cherries, medium light tannins with nice acidity and good balance. Almost burgundian in flavor profile.
Decent wine, but leaves a bit of a harsh burning feeling in the back of the throat.
Nice easy red wine for the price.
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
I was looking for Bonny Doon's Muscat, but the store didn't have it and recommended this. For a sweet wine, it is very good. It has a nice honey peach flavor. I prefer moderately sweet wines-this is too sweet.
Tastes great, I love it!
External Reviews for Michele Chiarlo
The 2008 Barbera drsquo;Asti Superiore Le Orme offers up dark red fruit, flowers, licorice and spices, showing good depth and fine overall harmony. Clean, mineral notes frame the pretty finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010ndash;2013.
Minerally, with hints of berry and aromatic bark. Medium-bodied, with a tangy fruit palate and fresh finish. Bargain Barbera for everyone. Drink now.
Winemaker Notes - typical are the hints of citrus fruit, lime blossom and minerals; its freshness on the palate, fragrance and well-balanced spirituousness make it a very elegant wine.
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.
Plum skin and cherry aromas follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with good fruit and a citrus and strawberry aftertaste. Drink now.
Chiarlorsquo;s 2006 Barbera drsquo;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: 2008ndash;2010.
This is very jammy, with lots of blackberry and raspberry. Full and soft, with plenty of fruit on the finish. Straightforward and delicious. Drink now.
