The 2012 Arte is a charming blend of 90% Nebbiolo and 10% Barbera. Although the 2012 vintage is almost sold sold-out, the estate will release a 2013 in the upcoming year. This is a terrific wine that boasts impeccable density and intensity. It strikes that illusive balance between elegance and power, without giving in too strong to the latter. Dark fruit and spice come together in seamless fashion. Tightly firm tannins give lift and backbone to the mouthfeel. |||My memorable visit with Domenico Clerico left me with a lingering sensation of happiness and good cheer that lasted days. First, I was delighted to see the man himself in such high spirits and good shape. Second, the wines we sampled together all showed the impeccable precision that sets this estate apart from its peers. Third, I learned of some minor changes at the winery (such as the introduction of a new base Barolo with a blend of fruit from various sites) that will solidify Clerico's positioning in foreign markets. eRobertParker.com.June, 2015
A Monforte estate founded in the late 1970s, the wines of Domenico Clerico have been famous almost from the start. This is Barrique Barolo’ and exceptionally well-executed to boot.
“I find a spirituality and character in these wines that puts them in a class with few peers.” Antonio Galloni
