Medium red. Very fresh aromas and flavors of redcurrant, dried flowers, tobacco, graphite and earth. Conveys an almost painful impression of energy in the mouth, showing superb focus and finesse. Finishes very long and penetrating, with firm but elegant tannins.

93 points, Stephen Tanzer's Int'l Wine Cellar (Oct/Nov 2011)

The 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.
