1998 Barolo Percristina Domenico Clerico

Average critic rating : 89.0 points



The 1998 vintage did not give the producer fruit of the same superb quality, as evidenced by the 1998 Barolo Per Cristina. The dark color is promising, but the nose is just a touch too ripe and the tannins, despite the overall intensity of the flavors, less ample, generous, and round. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2018.||A Marc de Grazia Selection, various American importers, including Michael Skurnik, Syosset, NY; tel. (516) 677-9300, Vin Divino, Chicago, IL; tel.

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
