The 2018 Barolo Ginestra Pajana shows a savory character with some delicate spice and smoke that is carefully folded into dark fruit, plum and earthy flower or iris root. Fruit comes from a site in the Ginestra MGA that was planted in 1971 with additional vines added in 1991. The wine shows excellent complexity and balanced intensity that is well-suited to long cellar aging. Monica Larner, Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The 2018 Barolo Pajana comes across as disjointed. There is good energy in the glass, but the wine never comes together in the glass. Dried out fruit, unfocused aromatics and a compact finish are the signatures. Antonio Galloni, Vinous
