The garnet-tinted red coloured 2009 Tortoniano shows bright highlights. The nose is heady, ethereal and complex. This Michele Chiarto gives off wilted rose, juniper berry, and spicy scents. The palate of this Barolo is ample, harmonious and aristocratic.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Chiarlo family achieved nice results with its 2009 Barolo Tortoniano. True to the varietal, it shows tar, licorice, black fruit and brimstone that shape a light and elegant feel. It takes its time to warm in the glass, slowly growing in intensity as it does. A medium build and bright berry end-notes complete a pretty picture of Barolo. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2022.
