2016 Barolo Ciabot Mentin Ginestra, Domenico Clerico, Piedmont

The Ciabot Mentin in 2016 is a brooding beauty. Monforte tannins and stunning power and intensity, there’s such a beautiful depth and energy to this wine from the team at Clerico. On the finish is a crushed rock character, and despite its power it’s never overbearing. A lesson in balance.

2016 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.
