2017 Michele Chiarlo Barbaresco Reyna
2017 Michele Chiarlo Barbaresco Reyna Garnet red with brilliant hues. Noble, complex, of the utmost elegance. Ethereal notes of small red fruits, rose petals and tea leaves. Aristocratic, remarkable fine tannins and the finish is long, balanced full of flavor. Pair with risotto, braised veal shank, or lamb with herbs.
If tradition is a consolidated innovation, Michele Chiarlo can full be considered a «traditional» reality. Traditional, because we have always aimed to promote the great terroirs of Langhe and Monferrato, using only indigenous grape varieties, Nebbiolo, Barbera, Cortese and Moscato grown exclusively in the hills, which are the authentic expression and symbol of this land and the ancient wine culture of these places.
Traditional, because we only vinify grapes sourced from our own vineyards, or under our management, situated in the most historic and prestigious areas of the Langhe and Monferrato, and which long years of experience have allowed us to select and know, vine by vine.
Traditional, because we have chosen the centrality of work in the vineyard, origin of the uniqueness of a wine, to which we dedicate the strictest attention, in full respect for the environment and sustainability of our work. Everything operation in the vineyards is performed manually, from fertilizations to the green work, up to thinning and the harvest. Traditional, because we only vinify wines in purity, without assemblages, searching to capture the character, the expression of personality, the goût de terroir.
Traditional, because we are a family. For four generations, we have lived the world of wine as a passion and destiny: a suitcase of experiences which, passed down from father to son, today translates into a wealth of living and active knowledge, ready to understand and confront future challenges.
