Michele Chiarlo Barbera d'Asti Le Orme 2020

Piedmont, ItalyThis is a serious Barbera d'Asti with a level of depth and precision that's well above the norm. It leads with beautifully defined cherry and plum that's lifted by violets and licorice spice, leading to a juicy palate that's marked by refined tannins and a finish that's awash with a stony minerality. If you're like me, this is the type of light, juicy red you always want on hand, whether for midweek pasta or a chilled red for the patio. Remarkable value, so back up the truck.Tasted: 28 January 2023Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices:
