The 2006 Barolo Ciabot Mentin Ginestra bursts onto the palate with gorgeous well-delineated aromas and flavors. This is an especially chiseled finely sculpted yet exotic Barolo endowed with extraordinary complexity and mouth-filling intensity in its ripe dark plums mint violets sweet spices soy tar and minerals. In 2006 the Ciabot combines elegance and power to a degree that is exceedingly rare. It is another superb and truly special Barolo from Domenico Clerico. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031.

A rich Barolo dense and powerful boasting black cherry plum and licorice notes. There's also a hint of eucalyptus as this crosses the palate ending with a wall of tannins and leading to a long mineral finish. A brooding... A rich Barolo dense and powerful boasting black cherry plum and licorice notes. There's also a hint of eucalyptus as this crosses the palate ending with a wall of tannins and leading to a long mineral finish. A brooding giant. Best from 2014 through 2035. 1500 cases made.

Good full red. Very sexy aromas of musky raspberry flowers tobacco and truffle with a strong minerality and a minty nuance not currently apparent in the Pajana.

Very sexy aromas of musky raspberry flowers tobacco and truffle with a strong minerality and a minty nuance not currently apparent in the Pajana. Then red-fruity and powerful but youthfully unforthcoming with a strong spine of acids and tannins currently subduing the wine's underlying sweetness. Finishes with serious but late-arriving tannins and terrific length.
