The 2008 Barolo Ciabot Mentin is a little more interesting than the Pajana. It shows good energy and length. Flowers, mint, licorice and red berries are woven into the long, saline finish. Today the Ciabot Mentin comes across as compact, austere and lacking fruit. It shows good up-front energy.
Vinous / Antonio Galloni -
"Medium red. Deeper and richer on the nose than the Pajana, with scents of redcurrant, mocha, dried flowers and earth. Wonderfully deep, layered and sweet; lush but with good limestone lift. This floods the palate with flavor and lingers with exceptional purity and persistence. "
Wine Spectator -
"Starts out broad and soft, with cherry, plum, mint, and licorice flavors, turning firm and dry on a base of muscular tannins. Tobacco and tea notes grace the finish."
