2001 Michele Chiarlo Barolo Tortoniano - Italy, Piedmont, Langhe, Barolo (11/1/2006)
Tasted at VinItalyUSA last week. One of the best Barolo at this event. I liked this better than the 1999 vintage that I had last year. There was a little alcohol on the nose but nothing that distracted from the wine. An integrated and balanced wine. An earthy character with marinated mushroom notes among the cherry and plum. Long finish. 92-93 points.
