PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEWS:
The winemakers at Domenico Clerico are known for their ability to coax grapes into stunning wines while employing organic practices and respecting the laws of terroir. With holdings in four of the most prestigious vineyard sites in the Barolo "cru" of Monforte (Ginestra, Bussia, Pajana, and Mosconi), their lineup of Barolos manages the impressive feat of standing out among the incredible wines of this world-renowned DOCG.

The 2018 Domenico Clerico Barolo is sourced from Clerico's holdings in Monforte d’Alba situated about 1200 feet above sea level facing east/southeast, giving the vines great sun exposure. The vines were planted between 1969 and 2005 in soils of sand, loam, clay, and limestone; the first vintage of this wine was in 2011.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The team at Domenico Clerico interprets this vintage with elegance and intensity. These two contrasting descriptors can be applied to the 2018 Barolo...which shows excellent balance overall. The bouquet reveals dark fruit, ferrous earth, licorice, and grilled herb. But you also get lifted aromas of wild roses and violets over a generous, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel." (8/11/22)

93 points, Decanter:
"Fruit from core holdings in Monforte: Ginestra, Bussia, Pajana, and Mosconi. The winery's modernist approach utilizes short macerations and a mix of small oak and steel vessels. The ripe, polished, concentrated yet tangy red fruits speak of freshness, while creamy, woody, and spicy notes give complexity. Gorgeous." (9/13/22)

93 points, James Sucking:
"Tight and focused on the nose with clean red berries and oak. Expands a little on the medium-to-full-bodied palate...with an elegant framework of very fine, lightly firm tannins and a dense core of fruit. The balance of fruit and tannin already gives a long finish. Needs to unravel a bit, but the essential ingredients are very fine indeed. Try from 2024." (2/14/22)
