"Fantastic aromas of cinnamon, violets and blackberries follow through to a full-bodied palate with supersilky tannins and a beautiful long, long finish. All in depth and finesse. A top 2000 Barolo from the 37-acre Ginestra vineyard outside Monforte d'Alba. Best after 2009. 1,250 cases made, 330 cases imported."

"Clerico's 2000 Ciabot Mentin Ginestra has fared better than the Pajana, perhaps owing to the vineyard's more sheltered south-west exposure. Layers of mint, spices and crushed rocks add complexity to the generous fruit. The finish remains vibrant, textured and polished, with a prominent scents of oak that are typical of Clerico's wines during this era. I don't see much upside in the Ciabot, but it should hold for another handful of years."
