Domenico Clerico – 11/04/2012

Tre Vigne Barbera d’Alba 2009
Chocolatey black forest fruit spices, juicy dark cherries and some warm oak tannins.

Langhe Nebbiolo 2010
Some stalky kindling notes but was caressing on the nose, approachable yet serious it was fresh and full.

Arte 2007
A blend of 90% nebbiolo and 10% barbera, showed the earthy dark fruit tannins and power on the front of the palate, but washed away quite nicely on the back.

Pajana 2007
From the Ginestra vineyard, quite reductive and funky on the nose, but opened up quite nicely on the palate, showing the brute of Barolo with firm yet supple tannins.

Ciobot Mentin 2005
Also Ginestra, had the benefit of a few years to soften out the tannins and fruit, but looked a little closed for now, and will open up again in five years.

Per Cristina2003
Comes from the Mosconi vineyard, is the wineries top wine, and was showing beautifully. A much warmer than average vintage, you would expect the wine to develop a little faster, as more classic vintages of this wine take at least 15 years to express to their full extent.
