|Barolo Ciabot Mentin Ginestra, Dom Clerico||2007||Italy||1 x 150cl||£160||2||95 VM|
Dark medium red color. Less fruity on the nose today than the Pajana, hinting at menthol and minerals. Less rich and sweet too, in a distinctly backward style for the vintage. But there's outstanding volume here and a hint of almost marzipan-like ripeness. Huge, broad tannins coat the incisors and front teeth. This will need extended cellaring.
