Michele Chiarlo Nizza Cipressi 2019
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barbera d'Asti|
Deeply colored, this Barbera from Nizza is a true benchmark. The wine has aromas of black cherry, blackberry and plums with a touch of sweet and savory spice. The palate has a gentle and soft texture finishing with a bright acidity keeping the wine lifted and energetic.
This dense red is very tightly wound and racy, revealing blackberry and violet flavors that show accents of tamarind and roasted almond. Still a bit compact on the finish. Drink now through 2026. 6,000 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.
The 2019 Nizza Cipressi is a powerful, savory wine. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, licorice, rose petal, dried herbs, earthiness and incense give the Cipressi its super-distinctive profile. This is an especially earthy, potent style.
