    The 2012 Barbaresco Crichët Pajè is tight and not especially expressive today. In this vintage, the Crichët Pajè is a bit more floral and lighter in structure than it can be. Imagine Burgundy with Nebbiolo acids and tannins. Among other things, that means the 2012 will drink well with minimal cellaring, in relative terms for this bottling. Despite its reticence, the 2012 is also restrained and so nuanced. I can't wait to see how it develops in bottle.

    This is mellowing and approachable revealing fading cherry and plum fruit framed by leather earth iron and wild herb notes. Opulent and succulent backed by dense refined tannins with the structure lifting the flavors and focusing the lingering finish.
