Michele Chiarlo Reyna Barbaresco 2018

Rivalling Barolo as Piedmont's best red wine, this wine has
delicate, refined savoury aromas with baked sour cherry
and earthy tones.
Producer Note
Michele Chiarlo is one of Piedmont's most prestigious winemakers, producing
outstanding wines from some of the most exceptional sites in Piedmont, including
Barolo’s world famous Cannubi and Cerequio vineyards. Founded in 1956 by Michele
Chiarlo and now run by his sons Alberto and Stefano, the Chiarlo philosophy “is to
capture the terroir” and with judicious use of oak they develop some wines for ageing
and some which can be enjoyed earlier. Their stunning collection of Barolo and
Barbera wines consistently receive 90+ points from Wine Advocate, James Suckling and
Wine Enthusiast.

Vineyard
Produced in the municipality of Barbaresco, the grapes for this wine come from the
Cascina Minuto C.E.G., which includes approximately three hectares of Nebbiolo
purely for the production of Barbaresco wine. Situated on a notable slope, the vineyard
has excellent exposure to the sun. The vines are grown in a bluish-grey calcareous marl
soil, with clay, which is poor in organic substances but rich in calcium and magnesium.
Winemaking
Vinification took place in temperature controlled tanks with maceration lasting for 17 to
18 days on the skins. A gentle 'shower system' of submerging the cap was used during
fermentation which took place at between 27 to 32°C. Malolactic conversion took
place in tank, before the wine was racked to large oak casks for 18 months. Further
refinement took place in the bottle for a minimum of six months.
Tasting Note
This elegant and refined garnet coloured wine delivers delicate, complex and refined
aromas, with ethereal notes of rose petals and tea layered upon small red berried fruits.
On the palate, it is silky and beautifully balanced with soft, fine tannins and remarkable
length on the finish.
