roagna, barbaresco, paje vecchie vigne 2013
The 2013 Barbaresco Pajè will leave readers weak at the knees with its stunning aromatics. Spicebox, cedar, tobacco, licorice and menthol speak to the essence of Pajè. A wine of depth and pedigree, the 2013 has a lot to offer. Orange peel, cinnamon, rose petal and mint add the closing shades of nuance in a deceptively medium-bodied Barbaresco that has plenty of backing structure and tannic clout to age well for many years to come.
Rich, with developing cherry, licorice, green olive and sandalwood notes up front. Then the dense tannins take over. A lingering hint of spice remains as this stretches out on the finish. Best from 2021 through 2038.
