September 30, 2019 93 Points Wine Spectator

A tangy, light-bodied white, with crisp acidity and a lively mix of tangerine, lime zest and verbena flavors, showing minerally hints of chalk and saline. Vermentino and Chardonnay. Drink now. 8,333 cases made, 600 cases imported.

Ripe berry aromas are supported by notes of coffee, mocha, smoldering charcoal and baking spices. A flush palate brings the fruit in quantity, while the flavors are all about quality and emphasize blackened, spicy blackberry, mocha and toast.

Michele Chiarlo Asili Barbaresco DOCG 2016
September 01, 2019 95 Points Wine Enthusiast

Underbrush, camphor and black-skinned fruit aromas lead the nose along with fragrant blue flowers. The structured, racy palate is focused, vibrant and youthfully austere, offering red cherry, crunchy cranberry, vanilla, truffle and a hint of game alongside firm acidity and fine-grained tannins.

This opens with earthy aromas of leather, forest floor, game and balsamic notes of camphor. The elegant, taut palate evokes dried cherry, cranberry, fennel and tobacco alongside tightly knit tannins and vibrant acidity.
