About the Wine

New oak adds a touch of vanilla and another layer of tannins to this intense red. Plum, cherry, tar, tobacco and floral top notes mingle with tree bark and iron accents as this evolves through the long, dense, dusty finish. 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! 94 Points - Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
