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.

This was an easy growing season for Barbera in general, and the additional time in wood (80% in tonneaux and 20% in barrique) for the 2016 Barbera d'Alba Trevigne has beautifully intensified this wine. Bold cherry and blue notes of dried forest berry appear on the nose along with pleasant spice and tobacco. Compared to this estate's 2015 Barbera, this vintage shows deeper aromas, with less acidity on the tongue and more ripeness and fruitiness to fill the palate. Try it with the Piedmont favorite of agnolotti and meat roast sauce. Wine Advocate 91
