Michele Chiarlo Barbera d'Asti Les Ormes, 2010

Tasted alongside the much older Fourcas Hosten (below), this Barbera d'Asti is considerably lighter and less concentrated...but very good. Deep bluish tints. Cherries, roses and black licorice--the Barolo formula but without the tannin. Licorice, turning to black pepper. A very engaging wine. Fruity, high acid, low tannin but not at all simple. Can be enjoyed with many foods and a variety of occasions
