The Domenico Clerico 2015 Barolo Pajana opens to a beautifully saturated color with dark garnet and ruby highlights. Compared to the 2016 vintage that I tasted at the same time, this wine is more robust, structured and deeper. In some cases, I prefer 2016 to 2015, but this is one case in which the warmer vintage ushers forth a special and very attractive level of intensity. The bouquet is layered, multifaceted and fluid. Despite the many adjectives you could use to describe the bouquet, one thing does not change and that is the sheer intensity of this impressive Barolo Pajana. Monica Larner, Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The 2015 Barolo Pajana is a soft, forward wine that shows the ripeness of the year in its soft contours and open-knit personality. Gentle crushed red berry and floral notes give the 2015 lovely early appeal. I would prefer to drink it over the next handful of years. Antonio Galloni, Vinous
