2011 Michele Chiarlo Barolo "Cerequio"

2011 Michele Chiarlo Barolo "Cerequio"

Wine Enthusiast 94pts: "Aromas of dark berry steeped in spirits, baking spice, crushed flower, mocha, eucalyptus and pipe tobacco come together on this stunning wine. The firm palate boasts more fruit than many from this vintage, delivering juicy dark cherry, ripe raspberry, vanilla, cake spice and licorice alongside firm but refined tannins and bright acidity. It’s youthfully assertive but balanced, with serious aging potential. Drink 2021–2041."


The Wine Advocate 93pts: "The 2011 Barolo Cerequio is another spectacular offering from Michele Chiarlo, a producer who has a knack for making faithfully consistent wines no matter what the vintage conditions. What stands out here is the balance and the intensity of the fruit. Fragrant tones of dark fruit, dried cherry, liquid smoke, cola and licorice emerge from the bouquet in a steady stream. That continuous and unbroken flow of goodness segues to the palate. "

Winemaker's Notes:

"A deep garnet with brilliant highlights, the wine shows ample black currant, apricot, cherry, mint and spice on the nose. The aromas are confirmed on the palate in a rich, full body wtih healthy tannins and a lingering finish.

Pair this wine with beef, buffalo, boar and venison dishes, rich stews and aged Parmesan."
