Michele Chiarlo sources grapes from strictly selected Barbera vineyards with excellent exposure to produce this 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. Ruby red with a violet tinge in the glass. The nose is elegant with light red berry fruit and cherry aromas that follow onto the palate. The ideal accompaniment to pasta dishes with tomato sauces and white meats.
