Wine Spectator's Top 100 - #08

Domenico Clerico
Barolo Ciabot Mentin Ginestra 2006

96 points / $90
1,500 cases made
Piedmont, Italy

This Barolo comes from 13.5 acres in the Ginestra cru of Monforte d’Alba, the southernmost commune of the Barolo zone. Owner Domenico Clerico took over the business from his father, who sold his grapes directly to the local cooperative, in 1976. Clerico purchased the Ginestra parcels in 1981; the first vintage of this wine was 1982. Since its debut, Ciabot Mentin Ginestra has consistently been one of the Barolo appellation’s finer bottlings.
