2009 Michele Chiarlo, Barbaresco Reyna
Piemonte / Italy
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Game, roast meats, and mature cheese.
The 2009 Barbaresco Reyna is a beautiful entry-level Barbaresco with lovely density in its ripe, red fruit and a long, polished finish. Berries, spices, French oak and tar add complexity as the Reyna sits in the glass, but this is ultimately a forward, juicy Barbaresco to enjoy while the fruit remains vibrant.
