Michele Chiarlo Barolo Tortoniano 2010 750ML

Free Mix & Match Case Shipping!

A legend in Italy, the estate of Michele Chiarlo has been producing world class, highly rated wines since 1956. Their 2010 Tortoniano is stunning. A more feminine version of Barolo with delicate floral fragrances, and a silky, finessed palate. Named for the tortonian-era soils in which the vines are planted, the clusters are thinned and harvested somewhat later than usual so that the fruit attains higher concentration. Temperatures are strictly controlled during vinification and the wine is aged for two years in large oak casks and one year in bottle before release.

Rating
"Fresh, elegant and detailed, this red offers cherry, strawberry, floral, licorice, tar and tobacco aromas and flavors. It firms up on the long finish, remaining fresh and complex. Best from 2018 through 2033. " The Wine Spectator, 93 Points

"Wow. This shows such a wonderful, complex fruit character of dried berries, lemon rind and ash. Some cloves, too. Full body with silky tannins and a fruity finish. Better in 2016." James Suckling, 93 Points

"The 2010 Barolo Tortoniano is aged in large oak cask for two years and shows an impressive level of fruit boldness and extraction. Although the style is plush and modern on the Barolo continuum, Tortoniano is a seamless expression with supple tannins and fresh acidity that meld into one beautiful whole. Drink: 2016-2025." The Wine Advocate, 92+ Points

Wine maker notes
Since 1956, the Piedmont winemaker Michele Chiarlo has foreshadowed the continuing quest for quality on the part of so many of Italy's conscientious producers. From the beginning, the Chiarlo family winery has made superior Barolos that today are consistently among the most renowned expressions of these wines. Over the years, Michele Chiarlo has realized a success and recognition brought by constant pursuit of quality. Today’s winery was built on the business of Chiarlo's father: the estate vineyards and family home in Calamandrana and the cellars and bottling facility in nearby Susa.
