Michele Chiarlo La Court Riserva Nizza 2015

Michele Chiarlo's Nizza Riserva La Court is a multi-award winning Barbera red wine produced only in exceptional vintages and in tiny quantities. The grapes for this wine come from the La Court vineyard. A prestigious site originating from the 1800s, the single parcel covers three hectares.  The wine was refined for 30 months prior to release. Oak maturation lasted for 12 months: 50% in 55 hectolitre French oak barrels and 50% in Allier oak barriques, followed by a further 18 months in bottle. An appealing and structured wine, which is complex and elegant with layers of black cherry, cocoa and coffee. Harmoniously balanced, it has a velvety palate and a long, silky finish. Its richness and elegance places it amongst the finest wines in Chiarlo's portfolio.
