Top 2001 Barolo tasted 10/13

9. Clerico Domenico Ciabot Mentin Ginestra (2001)

« Prev Next » 9 of 10
Average price: $95.99 from 5 stores
This offers up complex aromas that are marked by a floral cast over nuanced, earth, licorice, anise seed, mineral and grilled beefy aromas. A touch soft in the mouth and dark and chewy. This is pretty extracted, and full of earthy spicy dark fruit. The wood spice is obvious but well balanced by the fruit but the wood tannins become harsh on the finish which is pretty tight and short. Not exactly what I’m looking for but this seems to be well made if very powerful. 88pts
