Michele Chiarlo, Le Orme Barbera D’Asti 2014, DOCG Italy
Tasting Note: A silky barbera with mid-palate flavor concentration.
Medium-intensity ruby in color this wine has an aromatic nose of red cherry, strawberry, white blossom, red plum and cinnamon and clove baking spice.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus bodied barbera expresses flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity finishing with a cherry-infused, medium finish.
The wine is silky in texture with ripe, medium-plus tannin.
An elegant expression of the grape from the region in which it thrives most.
Bottle Note: Barrel and bottle aged for 15 months.
