For all of you who made it by of Fine Wine Estate Sale in Needham yesterday, thank you for helping to make it our most successful Estate Sale event yet. Over 100 of you had the opportunity to meet Dominico Clerico cellar master Oscar Arrivabene and taste through a comprehensive range of their wines from Dolcetto to Barolo Cru. One of the highlights of the afternoon was the 2008 Barolo "Ciabot Mentin" tasted out of magnum. We have ten of them left!!

Ciabot Mentin is the flagship wine of the Domenico Clerico estate. The Barolo is named for the affable half of the sibling pair—Mentin and Fiore—that owned the property prior to Clerico, as well as the house (ciabot in Pietmontese dialect) that resided in the vineyard. The vines that make up Ciabot Mentin are in fact a parcel of the famed Ginestra cru of Monforte d'Alba. The nebbiolo vines are 40-50 year old and situated at 400 meters with a south to southeast exposure, absolutely perfect for producing wine with abundant aromas and flavors of ripe red fruit, licorice and mint. 

The winemaking with this wine is a marriage between traditional and modern. Skin maceration taking place over 20-30 days. After fermentation in tonneaux the wine was aged in oak barriques (80% New 20% second pass) for 24-30 months. While 08 is not widely regarded as a five star vintage, Domenico Clerico's winemaking philosophy and conviction to quality was a virtual guarantee that this wine would be nothing short of outstanding.... and based upon our Estate Sale tasting yesterday... it is indeed. 
Stephen Tanzer/Vinous Rated 96 Points (11/11)
"Medium red. Deeper and richer on the nose than the Pajana, with scents of redcurrant, mocha, dried flowers and earth. Wonderfully deep, layered and sweet; lush but with good limestone lift. This floods the palate with flavor and lingers with exceptional purity and persistence."
