Sealed with a cork, this Langhe Nebbiolo is one of the newcomers to the Chiarlo stable.
It features violets and spice on the nose, followed by a palate driven by ripe red fruit and fine tannins.
One of this wine’s brothers (the 2015 Ciprissi Nizza Barbera) was named Wine Enthusiast 2018 #1 Wine of the Year. The pedigree is evident throughout the range.
The Michele Chiarlo 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo Il Principe opens to a pretty garnet color and bright aromas of wild cherry, blue flower, hazelnut and earthy potting soil. The wine boasts authentic and pleasing aromas that get your appetite going, especially as you wait for that piping hot plate of tajarin al plin to come out from the kitchen.
