Looking for a lighter bodied, casual wine for summer grilling? Michele Chiarlo 2010 “Le Orme” Barbera d’Asti Superiore is a great bottle to bring to any BBQ. 100% Barbera that has enough character to shine at $12 a bottle.
This ruby colored wine opens with aromas of bright cherries and ripe, dark berries. The palate offers straightforward tastes of ripe cherries, anise, and noticeable minerality. An easy sipping Barbera that drinks nicely at its price point! (13.5% alcohol)
My Wine Rating – B
Food Pairing Suggestions – Pair with grilled chicken, pizza topped with mushrooms, or pork chops.
