‘Dear Dad, it is with great honor that I accept the job of carrying on the business that you created with a lifetime of hard work! But, I beg you to accept my wishes: with the greatest respect for everything you have done and passed on to me, I want to go ahead and only make wine. With your support and Giuliana’s help, I want to show everyone that I can make great wines that people will appreciate, because the land where we live has something precious that we still do not fully understand...’

And with that letter in 1976, Domenico Clerico began to not just grow grapes but produce Barolo from Monforte d’Alba. Today, he’s one of the most respected producers in the world, his wines are now a benchmark for Barolo. Never afraid to push or explore new ideas, Domenico started out with next to nothing and a desire to understand the unknown.

Domenico left us a great gift, a philosophy that spans time, between the tradition of a land that offers great emotions and innovation, the desire to continually improve.

Imagine getting kicked in the face by a ballerina. Nebbiolo has this exact same kind of elegant brutality. One the one hand, it’s elegant with its delicate aromas of roses, raspberry coulis, and anise waft into your nose. On the other hand, it’s brutal. When tasted, Nebbiolo has so much astringency and mouth-drying tannins that your eyes start watering.

Capisme-e is a philosophy, an introductory key to the world of Nebbiolo, in the Piedmontese dialect: ‘Capisme-e’ which loosely translates to ‘understand me’. Nebbiolo laid bare in its purity, one version with a strong personality typical of Monforte d'Alba. First vintage produced in 2009.

Maceration on the skins with delicate extraction and maximum attention to preserving the fruity aromas. Refinement in steel and amphora.
