International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 117

Good dark red. Superripe, slightly reduced aromas of raspberry and mocha (this usually shows blacker fruits on the nose at this stage). Suave on entry, then musky, mellow and rich; less directly fruity than the Ginestra but simultaneously opulent and stylish. Finishes with big, rich, chewy tannins that coat the front teeth. Both this and the Ginestra seem much more than a year younger than the same two bottlings from the 2000 vintage.

This strong series continues with the 2001 Barolo Pajana. It is a deeply-colored effort, with notes of violets, minerals and tar. The lower altitude of the vineyard gives a wine that is perhaps a touch less complex aromatically but that is quite rich, round and soft on the palate with generous amounts of very ripe black fruit, chocolate and toasted oak flavors supported by notable structure and finishing with excellent length.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Blackberry, spice and chocolate aromas and flavors follow through to a full-bodied palate, with chewy tannins and a long, long finish. A big wine. I like this better than 2000 for this vineyard. Solid as a rock. 200 cases imported.

Delicious, classic Barolo -- though on the dark and powerful end of the spectrum. Complex with a long finish, very well integrated and drinking great. All good.
