Of the Barolo wines, Clerico's is perhaps the least archetypal--or rather the one in which the style of the producer is most noticeable. It has a concentration of color most outstanding and unusual in Barolo: even after three years of aging, most of which is in wood, it still retains a deep, vivid ruby with a mulberry ripeness that is remimiscent of a Grand Echezeaux.

Wine SpectatorAromas of blackberry, plum skin and hints of cut wood. Full-bodied, chewy and very rich, with lots of tannins, French oak and fruit. This is dense and concentrated. Layered. Needs time. Best after 2012.

Wine AdvocateClerico-s 2004 Barolo Pajana is an explosive wine loaded with layers of deeply spiced dark fruit. It is a notably pure, focused version of this wine that is totally compelling for its overall balance. The south-facing Pajana vineyard tends to give a more fruit-driven style of Barolo but the 2004 is a beautifully complete wine. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2024.

Antonio Galloni, December 2007
