Chiarlo, Cerequio, Barolo 2006
Almost atypical La Morra: much bigger and creamier than the usually lighter-styled wines from this hamlet. Rich and fleshy, and made from vines growing close by Michele Chiarlo’s new luxury resort that overlooks this famous cru. 17.5pts/20 (91/100pts)
Price £40–£42 Corking Wines, Slurp, Swig
