Domenico Clerico’s 2000 Barolo Percristina vintage was rated a perfect 100 points by Wine Spectator – a sublime Barolo from an excellent vintage in which yields were down, and so grapes were more concentrated.

Eccentric grower-producer Domenico Clerico makes Barolos that combine the fruit, elegance and aromas of modern styles with the power and depth of extract sought by traditionalist.

“Dark ruby color, with fabulous aromas of blackberries, toasted oak and cedar. Turns to fresh herbs and wild berries. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and lots of ripe fruit. Amazing finish of toasted oak. The greatest wine ever from Clerico. First made in 1995. Breathtaking.” Wine Spectator

“This bottle of the 2000 Barolo Percristina offers intense, exotic sensations of super-ripe fruit, menthol and minerals, with an opulent open-knit personality and superb persistence on the palate. Hard to resist now, it will be even better in a few years.”

“The most complex today on the nose of Clerico's three 2000 Barolos, with notes of smoky red fruits and nuts. Sweet, smooth and seamless, with a glyceral texture that really captures the richness of the vintage. Highly concentrated wine but without the sheer verve and grip of the '99. Finishes with big, rich tannins and impressive length.” Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar

“One of the most gifted winemakers in Piedmont...these are wines of extraordinary richness, amazing aromatics, and sensual personalities that satiate both the hedonistic and the intellectual senses." Robert Parker
