"Exuberant and exciting, the 2013 Barolo is a fantastic new edition to the Domenico Clerico family. This wine was first introduced in 2011. Before then, the estate only made cru expressions. Here's how it works. The single-vineyard wines are vinified separately of course. The winemaking team tastes through all the barrels to eliminate the ones that don't fit the taste profiles (or quality standards) of their respective cru site. Those barrels are then blended to make this wine. What you get is a hodge-podge of the best of Clerico. The effect works wonders. There is so much intensity and fruity succulence to behold. The wine is rich and beautifully smooth in texture." Wine Advocate-Parker

This special estate in Piedmont, North Italy, has a long family history and is one of the best respected houses in the region. 1976 Domenico Clerico took the reins of his father’s small farm and decided to make his own wine, concentrating his efforts on making bottling wines from single vineyard bottles, which was a very new concept at the time. He made the savvy purchase in 1977 of a small plot in the heart of Bussia, which turned out to be one of the very best in the whole of Piedmont. In July 2017, the death of Domenico at a relatively young age took the wine world by surprise but has not changed the energy of the estate. 100% nebbiolo, this wine is a pleasing dark ruby, with a hint of licorice and cherry on the nose, followed by mouth-filling and supple red fruit flavours balanced with spice and lip-smacking freshness. Drinking this wine you will be tasting a piece of history!
