Day #325 of the year.

Michele Chiarlo Tortoniano Barolo DOCG 2016

Your parents love you and would never literally ask you to pay them back in cash for the years they spent raising you (or maybe they would?! No judging: everyone has a different family dynamic), but on this National Pay Back Your Parents Day, a nice gesture like a bottle of Michele Chiarlo Tortoniano Barolo would be highly appreciated. Bonus: if they want to “raise” this bottle for 18 years, too, it only gets better with time. Just like their offspring. *wink

ORIGIN

Piedmont, Italy

Grapes

100% Nebbiolo

Red wine, bottle image, Michele Chiarlo Barolo DOCG Tortoniano, Italian wine, Nebbiolo

Tasting Notes

The wine shows layered aromas of rose petals, juniper berries and fine spices. On the palate the acidity is balanced and the tannins are silky, leading to a long finish.

Food Match

This wine is a superlative pairing for fettuccine with porcini, braised red meats, and well-matured cheeses.
