2016 Barolo Aeroplanservaj, Domenico Clerico

A little more closed today, there’s delicate strawberry fruit on the nose, as well as a pomegranate nose. On the palate there’s a richness, but perfectly balanced by grippy Monforte tannins and loads of energy. So, so well balanced, but in need of a bit of time.

2016 Barolo Aeroplanservaj, Domenico Clerico
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.
