There Will Be Others, But Not Like This!
First we featured the 2016 Gaja Barbaresco. Then, the 2016 Cavallotto Barolo. Today, we're thrilled to showcase the 2016 Domenico Clerico to round out our third Nebbiolo feature from this "stunning, brilliant" vintage.
Each offer readers different - and fantastic - expressions of Nebbiolo. Wild cherry, dried spice, and cedar give way to intoxicating truffle aromas.
On the palate, similar flavors return with cherry, eucalyptus, espresso, and burnt earth. Fine, dusty tannins cleanse the palate and offer wonderful grip. We may be featuring other Barolo and Barbaresco from 2016 vintage, but few will rival the value of this beautiful Nebbiolo.
It is big and round, but retains so much of the rustic Piedmont charm. One of the best vintages since 2010, Domenico Clerico has holdings in some of the region's most esteemed crus, including Ginestra and Mosconi.
This beautiful Barolo is a blend of Nebbiolo from these prized single vineyards.
