Bottle and Technical Notes: "Origin: South of the Asti Hills in Piedmont, Italy. The Wine: Elegant, red fruit, vibrant body with roundness and a beautiful savory finish. The 2020 winter season began with mild temperatures and little rainfall. The first part of spring was relatively dry and sunny, and March and April enjoyed good weather and mild temperatures. In May, an unstable climate recorded a considerable number of rainy days, lasting until late June. This slowed down vegetative development but allowed for an accumulation of water in the ground. It was a generally abundant vintage, although thinning brought quantities back to normal. Overall, the climate was ideal, with a final sprint of bright days and excellent temperature range between day and night from mid-August to late September, conditions that characterize great vintages."

Tasting Notes: The color is a deep, rich, ruby red that is almost purple. The nose is headily aromatic with red mature fruit, cherries, red raspberries, on the nose, which follows through on the palate. The finish is lush and lingering, with good structure and balance. 

Suggested Pairing Notes: Pasta with tomato, pizza, Livorno-style fish, and white meat. 

Luxury Experience - Livorno - Style Seafood Stew - Photo by Luxury Experience

We paired the Michele Chiarlo Le Orme Barbera d'Asti DOCG 2020 with a Livorno-style seafood stew we created that really brought out the flavors of this gorgeous wine. Our recipe for Luxury Experience - Livorno-Style Seafood Stew uses a seafood blend of Atlantic cod, sea scallops, and shrimp, and melds them with carrots, celery, mushrooms, dried natural black olives, and garlic, with fresh from the garden tomatoes, fresh parsley, fresh oregano, canned crushed tomatoes, and finishes the sauce with the addition of Michele Chiarlo Le Orme Barbera d'Asti DOCG 2020, which is then baked in the oven. Presented over creamy polenta, this recipe is easy-to-make, and easy to love.
