Description

The 2007 Barolo Pajana has clearly progressed to its secondary stage of evolution, its red fruit tinged with leather and mint, yet it has retained outstanding clarity and definition. The palate is well structured with vivid red fruit laced with tobacco and clove, discreetly fanning out toward the elegant, sophisticated finish. This has matured extremely well and has probably another decade on the clock. Tasted at the Vinous off-line dinner at La Trompette. Neal Martin, Vinous (94)

The Pajana vineyard takes its name from the old road that runs along the top of the hill, an ancient pass that connected Monforte d'Alba and Serralunga, which is still accessible on foot today. A vineyard in flourishing balance, with scrupulous attention to the vinification, to carry its exuberance in the glass: a certainty for the last 30 years.

In 1977 Domenico Clerico decided to leave his job as a salesman in order to work full time in his family’s estate. After several experiments in the cellar, Domenico’s friends persuaded him to make wine on a permanent basis. Vineyards were purchased in some of the most interesting crus of Monteforte: Ginestra in 1983, Pajana in 1989 and the last, Mosconi, in 1985. Domenico, who tragically passed away earlier in July 2017, is of the region’s great legends, as an advocate for the modern Barolo winemaking philosophy of short maceration and ageing in barriques. The wines display polish, structure and - most importantly - balance.
