2011 Barolo Ciabot Mentin Ginestra, Domenico Clerico, Piedmont

There’s an open generous nose, filled with notes of blood orange, dark tomato, spice and warm fruits. Deep and pure, nice tannins build alongside gentle oak. This is such a good wine, so supple and well balanced - very Monforte. Great acidity, lovely energy and an obvious star of the cellar.

2011 Barolo Ciabot Mentin Ginestra, Domenico Clerico, Piedmont
Domenico Clerico

His name is one of the most respected in the Piedmont, and his wines are equally so. With this domaine’s access to superlative crus, coupled with assiduous if not innovative winemaking, Domenico Clerico has established his property as one of the benchmarks of Barolo. While he’s often labeled as one of the modernists of Barolo, it’s far too simplistic a label. His wines offer polish and precision, but also the concentration and intensity that more traditional bottles offer.
