2014 Michele Chiarlo Cipressi Nizza Barbera DOCG
Michele Chiarlo graduated from enology school in 1956 and followed seven generations of wine growers into the business. When he started, the wines of Piemonte rarely left the area, but in the 60's he was a part of the movement to improve the wines of the region and export them to the rest of Europe and the US.
Wine maker notes:
The Cipressi wine gets its name from 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.
Wine Enthusiast 90 points (Nov 2017)
This wine’s wild berry, violet, porcini, forest floor and crushed herb aromas leap out of the glass. The vibrant, focused palate evokes wild cherry, cranberry, star anise and orange zest. It’s a classic Barbera framed by firm acidity and refined tannins that shows its Nizza origins.
Wine Spectator 91 points (Oct 31 2017)
Bright and pure, offering violet, blackberry, black currant and light spice aromas and flavors. Beautifully balanced and expressive, yet with the structure to age. Drink now through 2025. -BS
