Food Pairings for Michele Chiarlo
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.
Nice floral notes. Earthy, roasty blue and purple fruit on the nose. Crisp, tart and berry-accented with good fruit and medium body. Easy drinking, soft red berry fruit. Clean and nice. Sour, tart finish. 88 pts. 12/15/12
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.

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.
An enticing red, bursting with juicy blackberry, black currant and spice flavors, accented by violet and mineral. The vibrant structure provides focus and persistence. Drink now through 2012.
The 2008 Barbera d'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: 2010-2013.
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.
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.
