  • Francesco Clerico Dolcetto d'Alba 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Organic Handfuls of earth, spicy black fruit, cherries and almond greet the nose. What a texture this has, smooth, supple and yet bright, and super clear on the palate which shows of wonderfully fresh small berry fruit.

  • Clerico Domenico Ciabot Mentin Ginestra 2001

    Snoothrank:

    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.
