  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

    Fresh still, with ripe plum and fresh flowers. Full and rich, but silky and very balanced. So pretty and polished. Needs more bottle age. Getting better.

  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    Saturated red-ruby. Sappy, delineated aromas of black cherry, rose petal and licorice. Sweet, dense, layered and deep; superb fruit framed by a rather powerful tannic spine. Very persistent finishing flavors of spicy dark berries supported by strong but fine tannins.

    True to type, the 1998 Pajana is less expressive on the nose, but offers notable concentration on the palate, with beautiful notes of licorice, roasted coffee beans, toasted oak and sweet dark fruit in a muscular, powerful style. This too will be even better in a few years.

This rather small estate in Monforte d'Alba is mainly known for its Barolo, but it also excels at producing great Barbera and Dolcetto and a delicious blend - Arte (Nebbiolo and Barbera). One of the leaders in the movement to modernize the winemaking process in Barolo, Domenico Clerico creates wines that are a bit more ripe fruit-oriented. However, he has such a deft and precise hand that the wines are never blowsy or overwrought. The result is wines that are attractive in their youth but gain in elegance, depth and texture as they evolve.
