Domenico Clerico Barolo Pajana 2007
'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.
A tight-fisted, compact example, with cherry, menthol and spice flavors locked up by the stern structure. Stays fresh and energetic on the long finish, revealing its ultimate potential. Be patient. Best from 2015 through 2032.
