Domenico Clerico Description

The first flag planted by Domenico in Ginestra and the first wine with which he made himself acknowledged in the world. One of the wines that in the last 30 years have made the history of the denomination in its entirety.

Wine Spectator: 98 Points

A brick house of a wine, with so much structure. Strawberry and raspberry tart on the nose. Full-bodied, with big chewy tannins and a fresh fruit finish. This is incredibly youthful and needs much more bottle time.

Wine Advocate: 93 Points

Domenico Clerico's 1998 Barolo Ciabot Mentin Ginestra is one of the most full-throttle wines of the vintage. Still deeply-colored, this authoritative wine possesses tons of mineral-infused dark fruit intermingled with French oak and menthol. This remains one of the most tannic and firm wines of the vintage. My impression is that the fruit will fade before the tannins melt away. Still, this is a beautiful wine Barolo to enjoy over the next few years, although it is not a wine for the timid.
