2011 Michele Chiarlo Barolo "Tortoniano"

Wine Enthusiast 93pts: "Crushed violet, herb, wild berry, leather, exotic incense, eucalyptus and balsamic aromas carry over to the elegantly structured palate underscored by a mineral vein. It's bright and fresh, with young, tightly wound tannins that need time to unfurl. Drink 2018–2031. Cellar Selection."


James Suckling 92pts:  "Very solid and rich center palate here with dried berry and chocolate character and hints of hazelnuts. Full and velvety. Give this two or three years to soften."

Winemaker's Notes: "The wine shows layered aromas of mint, fennel, plum and spices before rich red currant flavors, with rose petal and more mint notes. On the palate the acidity is balanced and the tannins are silky, leading to a long finish. This wine is a superlative pairing for beef roasts, lamb, game and hard cheeses."
