Colored a deep, purple red the Visadi has a very fine nose, graciously perfumed with notes of blackcurrant, plum, eucalyptus, and a bit of toast. It is warm and soft on the palate, velvety and fresh in the mouth. The tannins are delicate, and rounded by an intense and long finish. An excellent companion to red meat, pasta dishes, and medium aged cheeses.

Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Langhe Dolcetto Visadi is a deeply-colored, full-bodied wine. It is an intense wine loaded with jam-packed fruit but the very ripe style has been achieved at the expense of some varietal character. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2009. Few producers' wines have given me as much pleasure over the years as those of Domenico Clerico. Based in Monforte, Clerico has been turning out spectacular Barolos since the mid-1980s. I find a spirituality and character in these wines that puts them in a class with few peers.

Wine SpectatorA structured Dolcetto, with ripe plum and berries and a clean oak note. Medium- to full-bodied, firm and very clean on the palate, with a firm mineral finish. Needs some time. Best after 2007.
