Domenico Clerico : Barolo 2011SKU :J2072/11
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2011 Barolo is a new wine to grace the exciting portfolio of Domenico Clerico. Basically 90% of the fruit is soured from the Ginestra vineyard and the rest is assembled from three other sites. The 2011 vintage represents the first time this particular blend was made and you will remember the excellent Barolo Ciabot Mentin Ginestra released in past years. This wine is a close cousin. The bouquet is linear and direct with amazing precision. It shows dark fruit tendencies with pretty layers of spice and dark tobacco at its core. It spots a full body, tight tannins and balanced acidity. Domenico Clerico characterizes this vintage as one that can be consumed immediately, and the 2012 vintage as one to put away in your cellar.
