2001 Domenico Clerico - Barolo Pajana Nebbiolo - Italy - Piedmont - Barolo - Monforte - Red

Italy - Piedmont - Barolo - Monforte

Red Nebbiolo
Producer Notes

This rather small estate in Monforte d'Alba is mainly known for its Barolo, but it also excels at producing great Barbera and Dolcetto and a delicious blend - Arte (Nebbiolo and Barbera). One of the leaders in the movement to modernize the winemaking process in Barolo, Domenico Clerico creates wines that are a bit more ripe fruit-oriented.

Good dark red. Superripe, slightly reduced aromas of raspberry and mocha (this usually shows blacker fruits on the nose at this stage). Suave on entry, then musky, mellow and rich; less directly fruity than the Ginestra but simultaneously opulent and stylish. Finishes with big, rich, chewy tannins that coat the front teeth. Both this and the Ginestra seem much more than a year younger than the same two bottlings from the 2000 vintage.

This strong series continues with the 2001 Barolo Pajana. It is a deeply-colored effort, with notes of violets, minerals and tar. The lower altitude of the vineyard gives a wine that is perhaps a touch less complex aromatically but that is quite rich, round and soft on the palate with generous amounts of very ripe black fruit, chocolate and toasted oak flavors supported by notable structure and finishing with excellent length.

Blackberry, spice and chocolate aromas and flavors follow through to a full-bodied palate, with chewy tannins and a long, long finish. A big wine. I like this better than 2000 for this vineyard. Solid as a rock. 200 cases imported.

Delicious, classic Barolo -- though on the dark and powerful end of the spectrum. Complex with a long finish, very well integrated and drinking great. All good.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
