    (since 2006, this and the Ciabot Mentin have been aged for two years in 80% new and 20% second-use barriques): Medium red. Very fresh aromas and flavors of redcurrant, dried flowers, tobacco, graphite and earth. Conveys an almost painful impression of energy in the mouth, showing superb focus and finesse. Finishes very long and penetrating, with firm but elegant tannins.

  • 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.
