The 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Pajé is simply fabulous. Sweet floral notes soar from the glass as this deep, beautifully resonant Barbaresco shows off its compelling inner sweetness and total sense of poise. The flavors are deep yet fresh, with wonderful fragrance and impeccable balance throughout. A wine of total harmony, the 2013 is going to be nearly impossible to resist young. The 2013 is one of the best versions of the Pajé I can remember tasting.

“The 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Pajè is another expression (similar to the Barbaresco Riserva Pora) that falls onto the more immediate and approachable side of the drinking spectrum. This near or medium-term Barbaresco opens to fresh aromas of wild cherry and forest fruit with subtle touches of spice and grilled herb. The wine’s aromas are delivered with direct, vertical intensity. Indeed, the mouthfeel is equally focused and precise. Pajè offers a robust, dark appearance with soft tannins that caress the palate.”
