From limestone dominant soils, the Pajoré is a wine of undeniable power, richness, and complexity in every vintage. This is perennially one of the best Barbaresco wines made at any address, and at a terribly modest tariff. Antonio’s note is quite unusual, not at all what one expects from Pajorè, but we will see…..
“The 2016 Barbaresco Pajorè is powerful, dense and explosive, as the best wines from this site tend to be. Deeply balsamic, with tremendous depth, the 2016 opens up effortlessly on the palate. Readers will have to be patient, as the 2016 needs quite a bit of time to be at its best, despite its considerable appeal today. Menthol, spice, leather and licorice infuse a core of dark fruit with striking layers of nuance.” 95+ Antonio Galloni for the 2016, NOT THE 2018 OFFERED HERE
