Colour: garnet with brilliant luminous hues. Nose: inviting, complex with notes of rose petals , juniper berries and fine spices. Taste: ample, good structure with a silky texture of tannins which already give a surprising harmony to the juvenile stage of this Barolo. Remarkable elegance and persistence. Accompanies: fettucini with porcini, Barolo brased pidgeon, well-matured cheeses.

New leather, truffle and camphor aromas mingle with a whiff of wild berries on this earthy red. The ripe, accessible palate doles out fleshy black cherry, crushed raspberry, culinary spice and game alongside taut, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2022-2027.

A mix of macerated cherry, plum and balsamic notes of mint, wild thyme and eucalyptus highlight this balanced red, with a light viscosity and fine length. Best from 2023 through 2036. 5,000 cases made, 3,760 cases imported.

The 2017 Barolo Tortoniano is a supple wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Succulent dark cherry, chocolate, cloves and leather are all kicked up in this forward, fruity Barolo from Chiarlo. The Tortoniano is the best of the three 2017 Barolos here. It is the least pushed wine, a good thing in this warm and very dry year.
