"Good full red. Liqueur-like plum and black cherry on the nose. Then fine-grained and classy but tightly wound, showing utterly primary flavors of cherry, red berries and menthol. There's no way into this extremely backward wine today. But it has the racy acidity and excellent clarity for a spectacular evolution in bottle."

"The 2010 Barolo Ciabot Mentin opens to a deep, dark color and tarry aromas of dark fruit and liquid smoke. The use of oak is bold but contained, adding extra layering to the supple finish. The power and elegance of the vintage comes though at this early stage although the wine clearly needs more time to evolve. Drink: 2017-2030." ~ ML

" The most representative wine of the estate, Clerico's Barolo “Ciabot Mentin” comes from vines planted at 400 meters with south to southeast exposure, giving the wine its characteristic explosive aromas of ripe red fruit, liquorice and mint.
Vinification and aging: Sourced from 40-50 year old vines in the Ginestra cru of Monforte d’Alba. Maceration with the skins in rotor fermenter for 20-30 days, ageing in oak barriques (80% new – 20% second passage) for 24-30 months. 1833 cases produced.
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. His 2005 Baroli, the Ciabot Mentin Ginestra and Pajana, most recently confirmed the estate's superiority with 96 points from Parker for the former and 95 points for the latter.
No systemic plant protection products (products which act by systemic transport – through the sap of the plant) are used. Sulfur- and copper-based products are the most prevalent.
No herbicides are used (the soil is tilled). When needed, only organic fertilizer (manure) is used. There is little use of fertilizers in order to keep the grape production per vine low. Very careful use of SO2 in the wines. " ~Winery notes
