The 1999 Barolo Ciabot Mentin Ginestra is a deep, emotional wine that brings back so many memories of tasting at the old Clerico winery with Domenico Clerico, his then winemaker Massimo Conterno and the team. Deep, rich and explosive on the palate, the 1999 Ciabot captures the spirit of the vintage and this era in Piedmont with its voluptuous depth, stunning richness and exceptional balance. Dark plum, mocha, espresso, spices and grilled herbs saturate the palate in a vivid, nuanced wine that is simply spellbinding.

The 1999 Barolo Ciabot Mentin Ginestra, as in the past several years, remains the standard bearer of the house. Lush and ripe on the nose, plummy and with important notes of kirsch liqueur, licorice, and minerals, its rich flavors, dense, packed texture, and ample tar and chocolate are the evidence of superior grapes and cellar work, force and finesse at a very high level. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2022. -Daniel Thomases
