Clerico Domenico Ciabot Mentin Ginestra 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2006 Barolo Ciabot Mentin Ginestra bursts onto the palate with gorgeous, well-delineated aromas and flavors. This is an especially chiseled, finely sculpted, yet exotic Barolo endowed with extraordinary complexity and mouth-filling intensity in its ripe dark plums, mint, violets, sweet spices, soy, tar and minerals. In 2006, the Ciabot combines elegance and power to a degree that is exceedingly rare. It is another superb and truly special Barolo from Domenico Clerico. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031...97" WA 03/10

A rich Barolo, dense and powerful, boasting black cherry, plum and licorice notes. There’s also a hint of eucalyptus as this crosses the palate, ending with a wall of tannins and leading to a long, mineral finish. A brooding giant. Best from 2014 through 2035.

Good full red. Very sexy aromas of musky raspberry, flowers, tobacco and truffle, with a strong minerality and a minty nuance not currently apparent in the Pajana. Then red-fruity and powerful but youthfully unforthcoming, with a strong spine of acids and tannins currently subduing the wine's underlying sweetness. Finishes with serious but late-arriving tannins and terrific length.
