Product Overview

"The 2005 Barolo Ciabot Mentin Ginestra emerges from the glass with endless layers of sweet spices, menthol, violets and dark fruit on a powerful, authoritative frame. This is a beautifully defined, sculpted wine of the very highest level. Tar, smoke and licorice linger on the finish. The tannins are massive at this stage, and the wine needs time, but the 2005 is undoubtedly one of the stars of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030."

International Wine Cellars (IWC) Review

IWC 95
Good deep, saturated red with ruby tones. Lovely perfume of black cherry, plum, soy sauce, cinnamon and flowers; reticent but deep. A silky, intense midweight that's considerably richer than the Pajana. The highly aromatic red fruit flavors really blossomed in the glass with aeration. Finishes round, lush and broad, with harmonious acids and tannins and lingering perfume. This one has the mid-palate material to support its tannins. Clerico's '05 are wonderfully elegant wines.
