The 2019 Nizza Cipressi is a powerful, savory wine. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, licorice, rose petal, dried herbs, earthiness and incense give the Cipressi its super-distinctive profile. This is an especially earthy, potent style.
This dense red is very tightly wound and racy, revealing blackberry and violet flavors that show accents of tamarind and roasted almond. Still a bit compact on the finish.
The Michele Chiarlo 2019 Nizza Cipressi is a generous and abundant expression of Barbera with an inky dark color. The bouquet reveals blackberry, blackcurrant and lots of rich primary fruit. Cipressi is fermented in steel and aged in large oak casks for one year. The wine’s texture is soft and plush, and you get that little kick of acidity that is characteristic of this versatile grape.
Bright ruby red; aromas of blueberry, cherry preserves and medicinal herbs. Medium-bodied, this has perfectly ripe fruit, very attractive varietal fruit flavors on the palate, good acidity, very light tannins and good persistence. Subdued wood notes, and a nice sense of finesse.
