The Domenico Clerico Barolo's bouquet is linear and direct with amazing precision. It shows dark fruit tendencies with pretty layers of spice and dark tobacco at its core. It spots a full body, tight tannins and balanced acidity. Domenico Clerico characterizes this vintage as one that can be consumed immediately.
"Tight and focused on the nose with clean red berries and oak. Expands a little on the medium-to full-bodied palate, but still rather closed, with an elegant framework of very fine, lightly firm tannin 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." - James Suckling, 93 points
