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.

Fruit for this wine comes from various vineyard parcels all located in Monforte d'Alba, and in fact, the plan is to identify this wine as being from this township starting with the 2017 vintage. Starting then, the front label will read Barolo di Monforte d'Alba, because the winemaking management at Domenico Clerico feels it is important to identify this wine with a geographic location. But for now, we have the 2015 Barolo. This is an extremely elegant and graceful expression with classic Monforte d'Alba characteristics: The wine shows a tight and powerful inner core and the qualities (integrated acidity and tannins) for long cellar aging. You have everything in this one package. Wine Advocate 94
