Michele Chiarlo 'Cipressi' Nizza 2016

Michele Chiarlo 'Cipressi' Nizza DOCG is an award winning Barbera red wine made from grapes grown on the six hectare vineyard of Tenuta la Court in the commune of Castelnuovo Calcea. Castelnuovo Calcea is one of the 18 designated communes within the appellation of Nizza DOCG. Originally a sub-zone of the Barbera d’Asti DOCG, Nizza became a separate DOCG in 2014. This is an exceptional Barbera showing a wonderful clarity and elegance, with aromas of red berries, ripe cherry, wild raspberry and sweet notes of tobacco. Complex and structured on the palate with a rounded, silky texture and pleasing savoury finish.
