Michele Chiarlo 2010
Michele Chiarlo makes a wide range of wines from some of the very best sites in Piedmont, but his base is in Calamadrana. Michele's Moscato d'Asti is a rich, delicate and well-balanced dessert wine from the Muscat grape, which is presented in an elegant half bottle. Gently sparkling, the fruit dances lightly on the tongue. A delight at the start or the gentle conclusion of any evening meal.
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

Medium-bodied, showing rich cherry, black currant and black pepper flavors. Moderate tannins work with the acidity to provide structure. Dry finish. Drink now through 2014.
Shows aromas and flavors of spice, ripe black plum, black cherry and dark chocolate. The wine has coiled, tangy acidity and a velvety texture. - Winery
Winemaker Notes - Colour: Medium pale straw with green highlight. Aroma: Intense, aromatic and fruity, suggestive of sage,grapefruit, apricot, peach and meringue. Taste:Clean, light and delicate,with balanced acidity.
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
Colour: Pale straw with green highlights. Aroma: Intense, delicate and persistent with hints of linden blossoms and freshly baked bread. Taste:Ample, fruity and crispy.
Who doesn't like obscure white wine varietals ... OK a lot of people, but not us and here is a really cool one. Colour: Straw yellow with green highlights. Aroma: Intense, generous and ample with appealing notes of linden,mint and apricot. Taste: Fresh and elegant,with a silky texture, fine balance and delicate finish.
