Michele Chiarlo Italian Wine Lunch at Piattini Boca Raton

For 58 years the family owned and operated Michele Chiarlo winery in Piedmont Italy has been making quality Barberas and Barolos. For nearly six decades, the Chiarlo family’s quest for never ending quality has rooted them firmly in the marketplace as a valued brand with long lasting respect from other producers. In addition to the Chiarlo brand building Barberas and Barolos, Arneis, Moscato, Barbaresco and Grappa also make up the family’s portfolio. Michele Chiarlo is recognized as being one of the first Italian wine producers to introduce malolactic fermentation, which allows the wines to be more stable, lower in acidity and easier to drink as a young wine. Staying true to its family roots, ideally for another 60 years, Michele’s sons, Alberto and Stefano, have active management roles at the winery. Alberto heads up the marketing and sales; and Stefano, an enologist manages vineyard operations and works with the production team in the cellars.

At a recent Michele Chiarlo wine luncheon at Piattini Boca Raton we tasted, paired and matched our way through the portfolio and menu.

Lillo Teodosi is back, and weaving his magic in Boca Raton at Piattini with his rustic yet refined, authentic style of cooking. No culinary pretenses abound within the walls at Piattini. The look and feel is overtly Italian, welcoming and engaging. You will not find over-sized platters of food laden with red sauce in this ristorante but rather dream-worthy homemade bucatini, lightly tossed with fresh tomato sauce; uniquely flavorful fennel & arugula salad with orange slices and olives, and the simple is best, chicken Milanese with arugula salad. Located in Royal Palm Plaza, open for lunch and dinner Lillo Teodosi is serving up big flavors in a big welcoming Italian way.

The Cerequio Barolo is mighty in black fruit and spice aromas giving it rich flavors and, a full body with a healthy dose of tannins for a long lasting finish.

La Court Barbera is a single vineyard wine produced from meticulously cared for land making it one of the gems in the Chiarlo portfolio. La Court shows off classic Barbera notes of spice, ripe black plums, black cherries and dark chocolate but it is the piquant acidity married with and an elegant velvety texture that makes it one of the Chiarlo treasures.

Tortoniano Barolo is brightly acidic with hints of mint, red fruit and spice; this excitingly flavorful wine is best paired with game and hard cheeses.

Le Orme Barbera is robust, rich, and ripe. Stunningly red berry in the glass with tart acidity, warm spices and herbs giving way to a low tannin balance well paired with charcuterie.

Le Marne Gavi is classically crisp due to its citrus and mineral structure; Gavi’s bright acidity makes it a fresh wine and an ideal pairing with mussels, and fennel salad.
