Clerico 'Ciabot Mentin Ginestra' Barolo 2001 Drinking just right now with both richness and some sediment so, good time for enjoying in my opinion. Bold depth of black cherry aromatics, fennel and iron. Paired with braised lamb verdetto. (Thank you Nunzio & Joanne Alioto)

Drinking great. Everything a great Barolo should be. Still has great color. Tannins have softened but are still there.

Close to undrinkable in first 24 hrs. From that point onwards better though way too much oak taste. Not impressed.

Coravined this baby four or five times, then finished it. Closer to a barbaresco, but a lovely, soft, well structured Barolo.

Decanted 5 hours prior. Still very tight and tannic. Not giving up much on the nose and palate. I'm going to wait another 2-3 years before trying another bottle.

Massive and brooding. Very new world and still very big. Not the earth, rose, tar and litheness I expect in a well aged Barolo. Still enjoyable but new world
