International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 117

($83; these vines are 30 to 35 years of age, vs. about 15 to 20 for the Pajana) Medium red. Redcurrant, marzipan, minerals, mocha and coconutty oak on the nose. Plump, sweet and concentrated, with enticing red fruit and tar flavors. Dense and fine-grained but without quite the definition of the best years. Finishes with strong, tooth-coating tannins and a lingering note of dried flowers.

Mid ruby. Classic tar and mineral nose with real acid and tannin - more evident than in many other examples. For once this wine is not overwhelmed by sweet fruit!

Wine Advocate Author: Antonio Galloni Issue: 195

Clerico's 2000 Ciabot Mentin Ginestra has fared better than the Pajana, perhaps owing to the vineyard's more sheltered south-west exposure. Layers of mint, spices and crushed rocks add complexity to the generous fruit. The finish remains vibrant, textured and polished, with a prominent scent of oak that is typical of Clerico's wines during this era. I don't see much upside in the Ciabot, but it should hold for another handful of years. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2018.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Fantastic aromas of cinnamon, violets and blackberries follow through to a full-bodied palate with supersilky tannins and a beautiful long, long finish. All in depth and finesse. A top 2000 Barolo from the 37-acre Ginestra vineyard outside Monforte d'Alba. 1,250 cases made.

Very good wine. A little early, but extremely solid view of the wine already. Full of stawberry with some spice. Open for about 1.5 hours during drinking window. Opened up nicely. Would reccomend one hour decant time before drinking, maybe a tad more.
