James SucklingA wine with blueberries, blackberries and hints of minerals. Full body with wonderfully integrated tannins and a long, focused finish of dark fruits. This has such purity of fruit. Try in 2015. -

Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Barolo Pajana also shows supple softness and immediate richness. I love the energy and the pure tension. There's a unique brightness or crispness to the fruit that so perfectly balances out those emboldened layers of oak, spice and tobacco. The style is modern and muscular but all that strength is delivered in a silken glove. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028.

Wine SpectatorRich cherry and raspberry flavors are accented by spice in this dense yet ripe red. Mint and tobacco accents chime in on the resonant, long finish. Best from 2016 through 2031. 1,083 cases made.
