 Vinous 89 points (Nov 2014)
The 2012 Barbera d’Asti Le Orme is a pretty, floral red with plenty of near-term appeal. The flavors are bright and perfumed in this silky, mid-weight Barbera. Cherry pit, smoke, tobacco, chalk and sage linger on the polished, silky finish. The 2012 Le Orme is a delicious entry-level offering from Michele Chiarlo.
 Wine Spectator 88 points (Oct 15 2014)
On the rustic side, with dusty tannins interrupting the black cherry, plum and earth flavors. Peppery finish. Best from 2016 through 2020. 41,665 cases made.-BS

Wine maker notes
Michele Chiarlo sources grapes from strictly selected Barbera vineyards with excellent exposure to produce a superb, balanced wine. The choice vineyards are in the southern area of Asti province, especially the hills around Nizza Monferrato. Temperature controlled maceration and fermentation on the skins yields the dark, rich color that is typical of great Barberas. The wine is aged in large French oak casks before release.

Food pairing
CONSUMPTION PERIOD: already well balanced after 2 years, it maintains its fruitiness and freshness at least up to 6- 7 years SERVING TEMPERATURE: 17-18C ACCOMPANIMENTS: pasta dishes served with red sauces;white and red meat
