Domenico Clerico Pajana Barolo 2003

19,05900

The 2003 Barolo Pajana opens with extraordinary aromatics. Sweet and long, it reveals intense layers of ripe dark cherries, chocolate, spices and menthol in a powerful, authoritative style. It is a terrific effort in this vintage, and should mature faster than the Ciabot Mentin Ginestra. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2018.

Description

• One of the renegade band of winemakers known as the ‘Barolo Boys’ Domenico Clerico started his career as a progressive winemaker, breaking from traditional Barolo protocol to follow his muse in making terroir-driven, long-aging yet approachable Barolo Wines

• 100% Nebbiolo from the Pajana vineyard in the Ginestra cru, Monforte d’Alba.

• Pajana comes from a vineyard at 300 meters with due south exposure, and it typically less perfumed on the nose than Ciabot but rounder and lusher on the palate.
