'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.

Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Barolo Pajana reveals incredible aromatic complexity and intensity, something this particular site isn't always capable of. There is lovely definition to be found as this classic feeling, mid-weight Pajana opens up in the glass. Layers of ripe dark fruit, spices, flowers, licorice and minerals develop seamlessly through to the close. I am floored by the wine's volume, depth and length. Quite simply, this is a magnificent effort from Clerico. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031.

Wine SpectatorA rough and tumble red, full of cherry, floral, strawberry, menthol and spice flavors. The tannins are assertive, dominating the finish, but this shows persistence and a long, mineral aftertaste. Best from 2014 through 2032.
