Product Description

"Since the beginning, I have prioritized working amongst the vines, convinced that to get good wines you must care for the vineyard with love and dedication, establishing an deep connection with the land and a continuous exchange of learning and understanding the needs of the vine in every moment throughout the year."

                                                                    -Domenico Clerico

Earning 92 points from Wine Spectator, this wine "starts out broad and soft, with cherry, plum, mint and licorice flavors, turning firm and dry on a base of muscular tannins. Tobacco and tea notes grace the finish. Best from 2016 through 2035."

Details

Varietal: Nebbiolo

Region: Barolo

Region Description:

Considered the king of Italian wines, Barolo is made from the Nebbiolo grape in the Piedmont region of Italy. Full bodied, high in tannic, acidity, and alcohol, their aromas suggest tar, violets, roses, strawberries, even truffles. Very similar to, if a little more full-bodied than, Barbaresco. Barolos need to be aged for at least three years in the winery (five years if it is a Reserva), but benefits from additional aging. More recent vintages are fruitier in flavor, often a bit oaky, and may be ready to drink as soon as two to five years after release.
