Roagna Barbaresco Paje 2013
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barbaresco|
VinousVinous Media 94 points - "The 2013 Barbaresco Pajè will leave readers weak at the knees with its stunning aromatics. Spicebox, cedar, tobacco, licorice and menthol speak to the essence of Pajè. A wine of depth and pedigree, the 2013 has a lot to offer. Orange peel, cinnamon, rose petal and mint add the closing shades of nuance in a deceptively medium-bodied Barbaresco that has plenty of backing structure and tannic clout to age well for many years to come." -- Antonio Galloni
Wine SpectatorWine Spectator 94 points - Rich, with developing cherry, licorice, green olive and sandalwood notes up front. Then the dense tannins take over. A lingering hint of spice remains as this stretches out on the finish. Best from 2021 through 2038.—B.S.
