The Winery

D. Clerico

In 1976 Domenico Clerico took over his father’s then 12-acre parcel of land in Piedmont. He had previously been selling valuable fruit to the local cooperative, but with more attention to detail and dedication, Domenico was able to produce outstanding wines. Located near Monforte d’Alba, the winery is now particularly known for rich, aromatic, single-vineyard wines from the Barolo appellation.

Although the producer sits in neither traditionalist nor modern winemaking techniques, it has been a unique evolution of the family’s style throughout the years. At Domenico Clerico there is a Barolo lineup features Percristina from the Mosconi cru, Ciabot Mentin from the Ginestra cru, and one of the most important, Aeroplanservaj, a nickname given to Domenico by his father, from a rented plot of land in Serralunga d’Alba. Their most rare wine is the Bricotto Cuvee which is sourced from a plot smaller than a single acre in the Bussia vineyard, and the wine only produces 750 magnums annually. The estate was able to grow, with hard work and determination, and was able to increase land ownership to more than 50 acres of land and 110,000 bottles released per year.
