Michele Chiarlo Barolo Cerequio 2009

Michele Chiarlo Barolo Cerequio 750ml 2009       
Sku: 1830412*

Tasting notes
Colour: lively garnet red.Optimum density and fluidity Aroma: ample, generous and with a marked personality. A splendid symphony of sensations, among which ripe fruit (blackcurrant, apricot,maraschino cherry),mint leaves, gentian roots and spices Taste: all the seductive aromas are confirmed on the palate. It has a rich, aristocratic body of great character, a presence of delicate tannins; surprising is its delicacy,which caresses one’s mouth

Rating
 Vinous 89 points (May 2013)
Dark cherries, plums, mocha, licorice and tobacco all take shape in the glass as the 2009 Barolo Cerequio opens up. Today, the Cerequio is quite expressive for a young Barolo, with considerable depth and plushness on full display. Here, too, the wine looks to be built for near-term pleasure, but there is little question the Cerequio offers better balance and more overall harmony than the Cannubi. -- Antonio Galloni
 Wine Advocate 94 points (Jun 2013)
The 2009 Barolo Cerequio is a richly layered expression that sees mint and licorice meld into underbrush and forest berry. This medium-bodied Barolo plays its elegance card well and will undoubtedly continue to do so as it evolves. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028

Wine maker notes
”It is the most beautiful concentration of great crus that Langa can express.” Atlante delle vigne di Langa, edited by Carlo Petrini Slow Food Editore,1990 Cerequio is one of Langa’s great historical crus.All the guides Fantini 1880, Ratti 1961, Slow Food Editore 1990,Veronelli 1996 ranked it as one of the top Barolo crus Our estate comprises 9 hectares of vineyards and a 19th-century hamlet where Palas Cerequio was born, the Barolo cru resort. In the cellars we decided to have the Caveau with our story:Barolos from 1958 to the present day,with more than 6,000 bottles of historic memory. Our Barolo Cerequio, the first harvest being in 1988, is produced only in the years that we deem excellent.

Food pairing
CONSUMPTION PERIOD: it reaches its peak after 5-6 years and ages well for up to at least 20 years SERVING TEMPERATURE: 17-18C ACCOMPANIMENTS: important dishes of red meat and game, excellent with ripe, hard cheese
