DOMENICO CLERICO Barolo ‘Pajana’ 2010

Domenico Clerico’s single-cru vineyard ‘Pajana’ Barolo is superb showing in 2010. It has plenty of character, delivering pretty aromas of sweet cherries and strawberries followed by a tar, spices, crushed roses, licorice, eucalyptus and hints of minerals. This possesses an incredible tightly wound structure with a gorgeous caressing texture that demonstrates excellent depth, richness and a remarkably long chewy finish that lingers on. At this stage, the wine is still very primal and will require additional time before it hits full stride, as most of Clerico's wines typically do. Domenico Clerico is one of the best winemakers in all of Piedmont and readers looking for an amazing, age worthy Barolo from an excellent vintage that's still relatively affordable need to seek out Clerico’s ‘Pajana’. It will be a wine that can be enjoyed for decades to come. (Best 2018–2035) - June, 2014 (JD)
