    August 31, 2012 - Consistent with my prior notes. A very nice, straightforward Barbera. Lots of tangy plum and vanilla character on the nose and palate. Nicely focused with a gentle acidity, there's also a touch of oak on the moderately long finish. Not a lot of complexity, but very enjoyable and easy to drink. Year after year this Chiarlo Barbera is an excellent value.

    May 18, 2012 - Consistent with my previous note. This is an inexpensive, fairly straightforward Barbera that offers lots of tangy plum and dark berry character. There's a nice, stony minerality on the finish which adds some complexity. Very drinkable and excellent value at under $11.

    March 7, 2012 - Shy nose, crushed red berries. Palate is quite acidic and austere, really not giving up much. Stony finish, short. Fine mid-week for the price.
