Domenico Clerico Barolo Pajana 2004
Save $21.00 (20%)
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.
