*Cellar Selection* Crushed violet, herb, wild berry, leather, exotic incense, eucalyptus and balsamic aromas carry over to the elegantly structured palate underscored by a mineral vein. It's bright and fresh, with young, tightly wound tannins that need time to unfurl. Drink 2018-2031. (KO)
Very solid and rich center palate here with dried berry and chocolate character and hints of hazelnuts. Full and velvety. Give this two or three years to soften.
The 2011 Barolo Tortoniano shows savory characteristics of cured meat and spice with some balsam herb intensity to lift the bouquet. The mouthfeel is streamlined and tight. This wine clearly reflects the warmer conditions of the 2011 growing season and you easily recognize that extra intensity and concentration throughout this wine. The results are softer, rounder and more generous than you normally get from Michele Chiarlo's Barolo Tortoniano. (ML)
Michele Chiarlo's 2011 Barolo Tortoniano makes for a great introduction to the year. Soft, supple and impeccably polished, the 2011 impresses for its balance. Silky tannins support a refined finish laced with rose petal, mint, plum and sweet red cherries. There is a lot to like, including the wine's open, fruit-driven personality. (AG)
A saline, savory element underlines the cherry and plum fruit in this red. Soft and relatively open, with moderately firm tannins on the finish. (BS, Web-2015)
