Domenico Clerico on Snooth

  • 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. 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 ... Read More

  • Domenico Clerico Barolo Moscono Per Cristina 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of wood on the nose, a bit chocolately, with tobacco, mint, chocolate covered cherry aromas. This is surprisingly elegant on entry with nice focus, then the midpalate shows lots of wood tannin breaking above the dark fruit, rendering the wine rather simple. Theres nice depth on the palate, and this does show fine, tense sweet and slightly b... Read More

  • Clerico Barolo Aeroplan Servaj 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A bit stewy on the nose with dark fruit, framed by sweet medicinal notes, a bit of grilled beef, and sweet wild red fruits topped with a hint a of prune. Smooth on entry, and fairly high acid with dry tannins this shows a touch of cooked fruit quality in a very beefy, powerful without being dense style. Turning a bit ferrous on the palate, with...

  • Clerico Domenico Ciabot Mentin Ginestra 2008

    Earthy on the nose with layered notes of tobacco, some licorice, fennel, and much more Nebbiolo character. The oak is well integrated, with sweet toast here and vanilla notes along with some weedy character and red berry fruit. with some weedy character. Round, opulent and powerful in the mouth with wild red fruits, some lingonberry, currant and... Read More

  • Domenico Clerico Nebbiolo Blend Langhe DOC Arte 2008

    Snoothrank:

    The chocolate woody nose is dark and slightly stewy with simple, sweet wood and vanilla aromas. This is a bit thick on entry, blocky with less underlying fruit, and a lot of wood tannin here, packed with tannins in fact. Fairly compact in the mouth with small red fruits and a little tobacco that is having a tough time competing with all the woo... Read More

  • Domenico Clerico Barolo Bricotto Bussia 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Lovely woodsy aromas married to a dry toasted oak nose that shows light vanilla and milk chocolate notes over a base of floral, fine red fruits, red currant notes with a touch of herb spice. The oak becomes a decidedly spicy aspect here. Powerful, silky and open in the mouth with a rich core of cherry fruit touched with strawberries, and wrapped... Read More

  • Domenico Clerico Dolcetto Langhe Visadi 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Drink Now- "The 2011 Langhe Dolcetto Visadi is gorgeous in this vintage. Sweet, silky layers of fruit caress the palate in this expressive, nuanced wine. The 2011 is a little laid back but it is very pretty just the same, as the starting point with this fruit is of a very high level. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015." Wine Advocate, 89 Points @th...
