  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

    A dense, meaty red, this starts out with black cherry notes, then shuts down with aggressive tannins. Tar, earth and tobacco details complete the flavor profile. Be patient. Best from 2020 through 2032. 416 cases made.

    The 2011 Barolo Ciabot Mentin is impressive on many levels. This wine always seems to excel in the warm vintages, as is the case here. The bouquet is generous, opulent and inviting with plush, rich dark fruit that is enhanced with spice, grilled herb and dark mineral nuances. The quality of fruit is profound and meaningful, and the wine offers a fluid presentation of aromas that changes as it evolves in the glass. Soft tannins add to the full-bodied build and sheer muscle of the wine. What I love most is the tonic energy it also offers.

  • 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.
