Company details

Farm
The farm “Aldo Clerico” was born in 2004, when Aldo decided to work by himself.
He wanted to use the experience he had obtained working for several years in some of the most famous wine farms of Monforte d’Alba. He became manager of the family farm, renovated the old cellar and built a new part of it to start his making of wine and the following aging.

The vineyards, six hectares belonging to the farm, were always been cultivated by his grandfather and grandparents with care and love and nowadays are cultivated by Aldo, who represents the third generation with a new passion and a strict respect of the territory. The biggest part of the vineyards is located in the municipality of Monforte d’Alba, the Barolo area, and a little part of them is in the municipality of Monchiero, production area of the Dogliani wine.

 The result is a new creativity.

Prestigious and long-lived wines, with big structures. Full-bodied, fruit and velvety wines with unquestioned quality.

A great wine is the result of a right composition of the ground, the exposition to the south of its vineyards and an ideal microclimate; the Aldo Clerico’s vineyards have certainly all this qualities.
The same importance has the care dedicated to the maintenance of the vineyards and moreover the sacrificial thinning of the bunches before the grape harvest. This a necessary operation to warranty to the grapes a right and correct aging.
