I have this love hate relationship with Clerico...mosty in my head.

I hate that it comes through not so much as italian but I love that it has just enough to remind me of Barolo, but blended with a massive Cab.

They call this approachable, of course, fruit forward and massively dense, but it is also massively tanninc and structured, so how it is forward again? I can't decide. I certainly can't drink this right now even though it is fruit forward but I'm pretty sure that it's not really barolo for me. I'ts like picking up a Rioja and not really getting a rioja.
