1997 Clerico "Pajana" Barolo

SKU #1040708 97 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dark ruby, with a brick red edge. Fabulous aromas, with wild strawberry, roses, sandalwood and milk chocolate. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. This is just a baby. Even better than I remember.--1997 Italian blind retrospective. (JS, Web Only-2007) Inner quote mark

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Clerico's saturated purple-colored 1997 Barolo Pajana offers a classic bouquet (reminiscent of a cross between Mouton and Lafite-Rothschild) of cedar wood, cassis, licorice, lead pencil, and mineral scents. The wine possesses abundant quantities of black fruit, tar, truffle, and cigar box flavors. A huge, monstrous Barolo, it is not one of the most forward 1997s, so 3-4 years of cellaring is recommended. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2001)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep red. Explosive, vibrant aromas of black cherry, dried flowers, minerals, licorice and spices. Rich yet delicate, with precise, juicy flavors of superb intensity. A floral nuance adds complexity. Finishes with extremely fine tannins. Beautifully balanced wine, and showing extremely well today. (ST) Inner quote mark (11/2000)
