The Barolo wine is known as the “king of all wines, the wine of the king”; it is a noble and generous wine that has given birth to the history of Italian oenology. The “Ciabot Mentin Ginestra” Barolo wine is produced with grapes coming from the homonymous vineyard collocated in the Ginestra Cru in Monforte d’Alba; this wine takes the name from the dialectal term, “ciabot”, that means little countryside house, that once was owned by the brothers Fiore and Mentin. This is an elegant and aristocratic wine that presents an intense ruby red colour, while the bouquet is various, floral and spiced with scents of rose and dry roses, blueberries, jams, fruit, black pepper, licorice and tobacco. Thanks to its peculiarities, this Barolo wine is perfect in combination with platters based on red meat, as roasts, game, and platters based on the famous Alba truffle, or seasoned cheeses.
Domenico Clerico, the present owner of this cave, began to approach to wine’s world in 1976: in those years his father cultivated some vineyards, that he sold to the Social Cave of Barolo. In 1981 Domenico decided to purchase a new plot of land, because at the time it was more convenient the wine making: in this manner he began to enlarge the winery. Today the cave counts about 21 hectares of vineyards, that allow Domenico to sell 90 000 bottles each year.
