An opulent, luxurious Barbaresco, this wine’s floral scents combine with its tannins to yield an earthy tension in the end, long-lasting and complete. The tannins have nebbiolo’s austere precision, a structure filled up with anise-scented fruit. Substantially and youthfully tough without any sense of excess weight, this has a long life ahead.
The 2008 Barbaresco Riserva Paje wraps around the palate with layers of dark fruit, spices and menthol. Today, the Paje is one of the more open of the 2008 Riservas, but there is plenty going on in the glass. Sweet floral and spiced notes add lift on the finish. As good as the Paje is, it also tends to shut down quickly in the glass. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2048. (AG)
Packed with rich, sweet cherry and raspberry flavors, this red is juicy and well-defined, backed by a firm backbone of tannins and bright acidity. The finish echoes the cherry flavor and introduces woodsy and spicy accents. (BS)
Medium red. Red cherry and flowers on the very ripe nose. Silky and sweet in the mouth but with lovely vinosity and floral lift to the almost candied red berry flavors. In a distinctly Burgundian style, finishing with suave tannins and noteworthy aromatic lift. (ST)
