Michele Chiarlo Barolo Tortoniano 2015
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
Violet, rose, ripe berry and minty aromas mingle with earthy whiffs of truffle, leather and game. The delicious, juicy palate doles out fleshy Marasca cherry, crushed black raspberry, licorice and tobacco framed in chewy, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2020-2027.
Some more savory aromas lead the nose here with game, leather and crushed rose petals, as well as fresh, woody notes and cherries. The palate has a swathe of brisk acidity, driving fresh red fruit and a strong thread of fine, juicy tannins. Assertive, long finish.
