In 1976 Domenico Clerico took over his father's company with his wife Giuliana. The company had 4.5 hectares of vineyards located in the most beautiful places in the Barolo area in Piedmont. Domenico now has 21 ha of vineyard in the Barolo area in Montforte d'Alba and Serralunga d'Alba. No insecticides, pesticides or fertilizers are used in the vineyards. He likes to release single vineyard wines, because in his opinion they best reflect the terroir. His wines are usually rich, aromatic and relatively easily approachable even young. All in all, a producer highly acclaimed internationally for going to great lengths to create quality wines that are in balance and for constantly reviewing his methods in search of perfection.

The 2Barolo Ciabot Mentin is one of the most beautiful versions of this beautiful house from Piemonte. As with previous vintages, this wine is distinguished by its intense inner energy and its richness in texture. There is muscle and determination here, and you can feel that especially in the youth of the wine now so that promises something for later. In the glass, the wine has a beautiful red color with very complex notes and layers of fruit (cherries, blackberry) in the nose, but also tar, rose petals, smoky notes, balsamic, herbs and spices. In the mouth a soft attack, an enormous concentration and structure with a lot of freshness, finesse and power. Very long finish.
