Description
 
In 1977 Domenico Clerico decided to leave his job as a salesman in order to work full time in his family's estate. Domenico is a self-taught man and started his activity as a vigneron following the advice of his producer friends and experimenting in his cellar. At the beginning of the eighties he met Marco de Grazia who started marketing his wine in the US in 1983. In the meantime Domenico purchased vineyards in some of the most interesting crus of Monforte: Ginestra, Pajana, Mosconi and Bussia. Clerico is today a recognized star among Barolo producers.

The classic 2016 Barolo by Domenico Clerico is a generous and full wine that offers a panoramic view of the Nebbiolo grape all in bright Technicolor and with the appropriate intensity. The wine's all-encompassing approach brings many details into focus, including wild cherry, spice, leather and ferrous soil. Fruit is exclusively from Monforte d'Alba, with some from the lower parts of Pajana and Per Cristina and some from the younger vines planted in Ciabot Mentin. This is an elegant expression with the mild oak signature that is an important part of the Clerico playlist. Camphor ash and burnt embers lift lightly as the wine opens in the glass. It ages in barrique for eight months, followed by another year in larger oak casks. Some 20,000 bottles were released. Wine Advocate 94+ (2016)
