1997 Clerico "Ciabot Mentin Ginestra" Barolo

SKU #1040709 98 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dark ruby, with a garnet edge. Violet, toasty oak, blackberry and plum. Full-bodied, with amazing fruit and super-ripe tannins. It's velvety and powerful. Still needs a lot of time. Spellbinding. Huge. (JS, Web-2007) Inner quote mark

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1997 Barolo Ciabot Mentin Ginestra is a fearsomely powerful, tannic, ultra-concentrated, explosively rich wine with a mid-palate in which one could get lost. A saturated ruby/purple color is accompanied by scents of lead pencil, cedar, black fruits, smoke, earth, and vanilla. Massive richness, monster extract, sweet tannin, and a blockbuster finish characterize this dazzling, 20-30 year wine. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2001)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full, saturated red-ruby. Sappy, high-pitched aromas of cherry, nuts and oak spices. Superconcentrated, spicy and sweet, but nearly as backward as a top '96, with superb extract and powerful underlying structure. Finishes with substantial mouthdusting tannins and a late note of dark chocolate. (ST) 93+ Inner quote mark (11/2000)
