Kathryn Harding's Picks

In Northern Italy’s Piedmont region the varietal, Nebbiolo is king. It is known for delicate floral and red fruit characteristics complimented by a punch of firm tannins on the palate. The Michele Chiarlo Il Principe Nebbiolo is more approachable than the long living wines made in the DOC regions of Barolo & Barbaresco.

There are aromas of rose, red cherry, leather and a touch of spice. The palate was dense and had darker fruit notes then I expected, the tannins were firm yet not overpowering. Normally I wouldn’t enjoy Nebbiolo without the right dish to combat the tannins but this wine is enjoyable on its own or when paired with the right dish.
