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

Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Barolo Pajana is surprisingly open and accessible in its fruit for a young Clerico Barolo, although the Nebbiolo tannins are, of course, quite prominent. The wine shows good plushness and generosity in its dark red fruit, mocha, spices, new leather, flowers and licorice, all of which flesh out on the supple finish. The visceral thrill of Clerico's best wines is missing. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2022.
