A Barolo, born from the overwhelming desire of Domenico to try his hand in new adventures, the “wild aeroplane”, as he used to be called by his father, in 2006 he chose to branch out from the town of Monforte and strike out in a new territory: Serralunga D’Alba. This wine is produced with Nebbiolo grapes deriving from a vineyard collocated in Serralunga d’Alba and it distinguishes from the other kind of Barolo wines produced in this cave both for its characteristics and for its label: 6 different labels that represent the Aeroplan Servaj lay inside a wood packaging, while outside there is the legend of the wine’s name. Elegant Barolo wine with an intense and transparent ruby red colour; the smell of it emanates a various and intense bouquet with floral aroma of violet, rose, blueberries, raspberries, spices. Wine of great balance and persistence that combines perfectly with red meats, seasoned cheeses. It has a good capacity of aging, too.

About the Winery
Located at the heart of Barolo in Monforte d’Alba, the Domenico Clerico estate has been making iconic wines since 1976, when the eponymous young winemaker took the reins. Beginning with just a small 4-hectare farm inherited from his father, Domenico sought out the best undiscovered plots in Barolo, thus pioneering the idea of single cru wines.
