Domenico Clerico’s 1990 Barolo Pajana comes from a vineyard at 300 meters with due south exposure, and is typically round and lush on the palate.

Eccentric grower-producer Domenico Clerico makes Barolos that combine the fruit, elegance and aromas of modern styles with the power and depth of extract sought by traditionalist.

“An intoxicating perfume of black fruits, spices, and smoke, with a touch of hickory and licorice makes this a totally profound wine. Clerico's performance in 1990 further establishes him as one of Piedmont's superstars. Unfortunately, only microscopic quantities of these wines are available.”

“Pajana is just superb in a sumptuous, enveloping expression of ripe, dark fruit. Tobacco, cedar, sweet spices, roasted coffee beans and plums are just some of the nuances that emerge from this full-bodied, intense Barolo. Clerico’s 1990 Barolo Pajana is a gem!”

“One of the most gifted winemakers in Piedmont...these are wines of extraordinary richness, amazing aromatics, and sensual personalities that satiate both the hedonistic and the intellectual senses." Robert Parker
