About

95

"Ciabot Mentin and Pajana are both single vineyards. Because they are solely farmed by this estate, these names have been registered in copyright as fantasy brands that no one else can use. Domenico Clerico's 2012 Barolo Ciabot Mentin is a beautifully meaty and succulent wine. It opens to an enriched and dark appearance with beautiful garnet and ruby highlights. The bouquet sports wide shoulders with dark fruit, spice, tar and toasted hazelnut. In the mouth, it shows depth, succulence and power."

90 Wine Spectator

"Marked by vanilla and toast notes from the new oak, this red nonetheless offers cherry, tar, tobacco and mineral flavors, matched to a fresh profile. Needs time for the tannins to soften. Best from 2022 through 2035. 833 cases made."
