94pts James Suckling

A bright and primary red with sliced strawberries, citrus and stone aromas and flavors. Medium body. Fine tannins and a fresh finish. Tangy. Crushed stones. Juicy and nicely chewy. Transparent. Drink after 2026.

92pts Wine Spectator

This red offers an appealing balance between the cherry, currant, tar, eucalyptus and spice flavors and the solid, sinewy structure. Ends with a mix of ripe fruit and savory elements. Best from 2026 through 2043.

91pts Decanter

According to Domenico Clerico's winemaker, ‘in the 2019 vintage there is five percent of barrique due to the important tannic pattern of the vintage, otherwise the wine ages in big Slavonian oak.’ Full of leafy lightness and focused on cherry kernel and red currant fruit, the wine is precise and more elegant than powerful, with almost-crisp acidity and velvety tannins. It's a bit more fierce, if not rustic, on the finish.

Winemaker Notes

Aromas of dried-fruit, spice, and cedar. The palate is full-bodied, focused and intense with a long and chewy finish.

Winery Notes

Clerico is one of the most respected names in all Barolo, and his wines are renowned for both winemaking of the highest quality and for exceptional character, deriving from outstanding vineyard holdings in four of the greatest crus of Monforte: Ginestra, Bussia, Pajana and Mosconi. The Barbera d'Alba and Dolcetto d'Alba from this estate are an easy and affordable way to enjoy the genius of this winemaker, and represent two of the greatest wines made from those varietals. Clerico's single-cru Barbera d'Alba "Trevigne" is matured briefly in barriques, 40% of which are new. His Dolcetto "Visadi" regularly receives 90 points from the major international publications. Barrique-aged Nebbiolo/Barbera blend "Arte" was the original "super-Piedmont" wine; Marc de Grazia and Clerico devised this blend together in 1983.
