Domenico Clerico is one of the most well respected legends in Barolo and his wines have long been celebrated for their extraordinary richness and striking aromatics. The estate is situated in Monforte d’Alba, right in the heart of Barolo with outstanding vineyard holdings in four of the greatest crus of Monforte: Ginestra, Pajana, Mosconi and Bussia; Baudana in Serralunga. When Domenico first embarked on his great wine adventure in 1976, his priority was working among the vines, strongly convinced that in order to make great wine one must care for the vineyard with love and dedication. His passion and love for the land has resulted in wines of the highest quality and exceptional character.
A true innovator in his industry, Domenico believed and invested in vineyards that were perfect for growing grapes for the wines that had long been part of Langa tradition. Although he is best known for his Nebbiolo based wines, Domenico’s expression of both Dolcetto and Babera are among the greatest wines made from these grape varietals.
