($83) Deep red. Nutty oak and marzipan on the nose. Lush, sweet and forward, in the style of the vintage. Shows distinct signs of surmaturite, with rather low acidity. Notes of tobacco, chocolate and underbrush. Finishes with substantial but slightly drying tannins.

About This Producer


This rather small estate in Monforte d'Alba is mainly known for its Barolo, but it also excels at producing great Barbera and Dolcetto and a delicious blend - Arte (Nebbiolo and Barbera). One of the leaders in the movement to modernize the winemaking process in Barolo, Domenico Clerico creates wines that are a bit more ripe fruit-oriented. However, he has such a deft and precise hand that the wines are never blowsy or overwrought. The result is wines that are attractive in their youth but gain in elegance, depth and texture as they evolve.
