Barbaresco DOCG Reyna 2013

Tasting notes

Garnet red with orangey hues. The wine has delicate, complex and refined aromas with hints of green peppercorns, spices and bitter almonds. On the palate, it is elegant with red berries and spice notes.

Producer note

Michele Chiarlo is one of Piedmont's truly great winemakers. The family owns 60 hectares of vineyards in three of the classic growing areas - Langhe, Monferrato and Gavi and also have access to another 50 hectares through their long-term relationship with growers. Michele has insisted on total quality since his first vintage in 1956, an ethos which his sons Stefano and Alberto adopt today. The Chiarlo style is highly elegant, they make complex wines that can age for decades but above all reflect their provenance - some of the finest vineyard sites in Piedmont.
