Clerico Domenico Ciabot Mentin Ginestra 1998

Winemaker's 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, liquorice and mint.

Powerful, sweet and spicy on the nose with integrated oak, very expensive smelling and while there are high, perfumed notes it’s a bit blunt and raw on the nose. Plush and opulent on entry and absolutely packed with extract, polished tannins, and rich fruit. The tannins clamp down on the finish though the intense plum and dark berry fruit fights through on the finale. While massive this retains fine balance and has solid potential for substantial improvement in the cellar though it will always remain a very particular expression of Nebbiolo 2012-2026 89pts

Racy acids give the flavors superb clarity. Powerfully structured and dest... Stephen Tanzer. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 1998 Clerico, Domenico Barolo Ciabot Mentin Ginestra 750ml
