Barolo On The Road - 2004 Barolo Pajana, Domenico Clerico

This night it was time for another 2004. I opened this a year ago and instead of writing a long tasting note, I can just say that it behaved almost identical tonight, maybe a tad more shut down. Will have to wait 5-7+ years for the remaining bottles, if I can...
This time it gets 92p   (tasted 2013/09).

Pajana from Clerico is definitely one of my favourite Barolos - here are some notes of the 1990 (the first vintage), 1996, 1998, 1998 and 2001.

  2. Did you know that Clerico's Percristina is from the same vineyard as Chiara Boschis Mosconi? Fun-fact... ;-)

  3. I've tried Chiara's Barolo Mosconi 2009 at her winery the 9th of September. And also Barolo Cannubi 2009 and Via Nuovo Barolo 2009. Nice stuff. Warm vintage.
