The 2005 Barolo Ciabot Mentin Ginestra emerges from the glass with endless layers of sweet spices menthol violets and dark fruit on a powerful authoritative frame. This is a beautifully defined sculpted wine of the very highest level. Tar smoke and licorice linger on the finish. The tannins are massive at this stage and the wine needs time but the 2005 is undoubtedly one of the stars of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030. -Antonio Galloni

Perfumed and aromatic with fresh ripe strawberry and toasty oak. Full-bodied with focused chewy tannins and loads of wood and jammy fruit. Powerful. Needs time. Best after 2013. -JS

A silky intense midweight that's considerably richer than the Pajana. The highly aromatic red fruit flavors really blossomed in the glass with aeration. Finishes round lush and broad with harmonious acids and tannins and lingering perfume. This one has the mid-palate material to support its tannins. Clerico's '05 are wonderfully elegant wines.

Dark crimson. Very serious and high toned. Thick with vegetation scents. Looks very exciting with a hint of rose petal. 18.5/20
