Winemaker Notes

The most representative wine of the estate, Clerico's Barolo "Ciabot Mentin Ginestra" comes from vines planted at 400 meters with south to southeast exposure, giving the wine its characteristic explosive aromas of ripe red fruit, licorice and mint.

Critical Acclaim

RP 97
The Wine Advocate

The 2004 Barolo Ciabot Mentin Ginestra sweeps across the palate with stunning depth and expansiveness in its dark cherries, menthol, spices, chocolate and sweet toasted oak. It offers exceptional length and delineation, with a note of freshness that provides lift on the close. It is a profound effort from Domenico Clerico.

ST 94
International Wine Cellar

Deep red-ruby. Complex but youthfully reticent aromas of raspberry, loam, rose petal, graphite, mint and tobacco. Rich, fat, chewy and quite dry, with compelling density and breadth and terrific juicy lift to the red fruit and spice flavors. A huge wine whose palate-saturating finish features broad, building tannins and superb length. Showing considerably more oak today than the Pajana but elegant nevertheless. This classically dry Barolo needs a good seven or eight years of cellaring. From vines ranging from 20 to 35 years of age, planted on compact clay-and-limestone soil.
Rating: 94(+?)

WS 93
Wine Spectator

Subtle and perfumed, with blackberry, truffle and hints of Spanish cedar. Full-bodied, with superfine tannins and a long, caressing finish. Balanced and very pretty.

Domenico Clerico
Clerico is one of the most respected names in all Barolo, and his wines are renowned for both winemaking of the highest quality and for exceptional character, deriving from outstanding vineyard holdings in four of the greatest crus of Monforte: Ginestra, Bussia, Pajana and Mosconi. The Barbera d'Alba and Dolcetto d'Alba from this estate are an easy and affordable way to enjoy the genius of this winemaker, and represent two of the greatest wines made from those varietals. Clerico's single-cru Barbera d'Alba "Trevigne" is matured briefly in barriques, 40% of which are new. His Dolcetto "Visadi" regularly receives 90 points from the major international publications. Barrique-aged Nebbiolo/Barbera blend "Arte" was the original "super-Piedmont" wine; Marc de Grazia and Clerico devised this blend together in 1983.

Farming Practices: No systemic plant protection products (products which act by systemic transport – through the sap of the plant) are used. Sulfur- and copper-based products are the most prevalent. No herbicides are used (the soil is tilled). When needed, only organic fertilizer (manure) is used. There is little use of fertilizers in order to keep the grape production per vine low. Very careful use of SO2 in the wines.
