Tasting Notes

Le Orme Barbera d’Asti Superiore DOCG

Michele Chiarlo sources grapes from strictly selected Barbera vineyards with excellent exposure to produce a superb, balanced wine. The choice vineyards are in the southern area of Asti province, especially the hills around Nizza Monferrato. Temperature controlled maceration and fermentation on the skins yields the dark, rich color that is typical of great Barberas. The wine is aged in large French oak casks before release.

TASTING NOTES

Medium bodied and robust with rich, ripe fruit on the nose and an elegant palate.

FOOD PAIRING

Pairs well with chicken, mushrooms, pork and grilled or roasted red meats.

POINTS OF DISTINCTION

  • A classic Barbera from choice terroir
  • Matured in large oak casks for greater complexity

Cipressi Barbera Nizza DOCG Michele Chiarlo

The name Cirpressi finds its roots in the Cipressi trees that are atop one of the hillsides of the chateau. Its color is ruby red with excellent depth and brillant reflections. The fragance is intense, with excellent complexity and pleasant notes of raspberries, cherries, and blackberry fruits.

TASTING NOTES
Cipressi Nizza is an ample, well-structured wine that possesses excellent harmony and freshness.

FOOD PAIRING
This is a very pleasant wine, easy to match with many international dishes. It is especially good with pasta dishes with different sauces as well as poultry and red meats (beef and pork).

POINTS OF DISTINCTION

  • Matured for one year in casks followed by 9-10 months of aging in the bottle
