Michele Chiarlo Barbera d'Asti 2003
from Piedmont, Italy
Pure, ripe plum and strawberry fruit flavors underscored by a crisp acidic note and a hint of earth mark this charming, succulent wine, set in a supple texture supported by sweet, soft tannins
Michele Chiarlo selects his Barbera dAsti from the best of these vineyards planted in older vines and harvested at peak maturity. Vinified at the Chiarlo cellars in Calamandrana, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and is then aged a least one year in oak. The result is a brilliant ruby-red wine with an intense yet airy, vinous bouquet and a medium-bodied, bone-dry robustness that is exceptionally pleasant on the palate. The best vintages, with age, tend to garnet in color, and show a velvety, harmonious quality of considerable elegance.

This is by far the best red wine I have ever had, and I'm extremely picky! I don't usually like reds, they don't agree with my tastebuds - but this wine is fantastic!! God Bless the Italians!
