Rich ruby. Clerico's 2002 Barolo is a sleek, stylish wine, displaying notes of spices, herbs, licorice, tar and modest fruit on a somewhat lean, compressed frame with good overall complexity but hard, green tannins. That said, this blend of the best fruit Clerico was able to salvage from his parcels in Ginestra and Mosconi is among the best wines of the very difficult 2002 vintage and is one of the few wines which may offer some surprises down the road. Judging by this producer's efforts in other similarly 'small' vintages it should drink well until at least age 15.
