The team at Domenico Clerico interprets this vintage with elegance and intensity. These two contrasting descriptors can be applied to the 2018 Barolo del Commune di Monforte d'Alba, which shows excellent balance overall. The bouquet reveals dark fruit, ferrous earth, liquorice and grilled herb. But you also get lifted aromas of wild roses and violets over a generous, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel. 94 points.
