Domenico Clerico is clearly one of the most acclaimed wineries in Piedmont and the 2016 vintage is one of the most successful ever for Barolo. The Clerico story began in 1977 with the purchase of a small plot in Bussia. The Pajana vineyard was planted in Ginestra in 1991. In 1995, a small plot in Mosconi was added, creating the Percristina Cru. In 2005, a plot on Serralunga d'Alba was purchased, creating the Aeroplanservaj Cru. These are truly among the most extraordinary wines of Barolo.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eJoin us here: \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/zoom.us\/j\/96824349653?pwd=cmIrZ01EdzVIM2JPTWZEbUZnbkVIQT09\"\u003ehttps:\/\/zoom.us\/j\/96824349653?pwd=cmIrZ01EdzVIM2JPTWZEbUZnbkVIQT09 \u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThursday's tasting will include, in this order:\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e2016 Domenico Clerico Barolo, $49.99 \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eA generous and full wine that offers a panoramic view of the Nebbiolo grape all in bright technicolor and with the appropriate intensity.
