2010 Michele Chiarlo "Le Orme" Barbera d'Asti Superiore
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.
The Michele Chiarlo Barbera d'Asti "Le Orme" is the first and only Italian wine to have ever received the "Best Value" designation from all the top wine magazines in the world: Decanter, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, the Wine Spectator and Gambero Rosso! Its price tag may lead you to underestimate it's body, complexity, richness. A great wine for entering into the world or Italian reds, all the way to those longtime fans of classic Barbera style.
