Michele Chiarlo Barbera d'Asti Superiore 'le Orme' 2015

Piedmont, Italy - 2015

Price £13.99

Michele Chiarlo is one of Piedmont's truly great winemakers. The family owns 60 hectares of vineyard in three of the classic growing areas. Michele has insisted on total quality since his first vintage in 1956, an ethos which his sons Stefano and Alberto adopt today. The Chiarlo style is highly elegant, they make complex wines that can age for decades but above all reflect their provenance - some of the finest vineyard sites in Piedmont.

A sweet and juicy Barbera, bursting with vibrant red-berried fruit and layered by floral hints and a touch of spice. An elegant wine which is well-structured, beautifully balanced and has a very pleasant, fresh finish.
