95pts Jeb Dunnuck

The 2017 Barolo Pajana Ginestra has complex aromas of dried cranberry, cinnamon, anise, and fresh flowers. The palate has a seamless structure that is long and inviting, with cherry pit, tea leaf and dried apricot. The arch of the palate is elegant and rounded, approachable now with a decant or to drink 2022-2042.

95pts James Suckling

Fresh and ripe strawberries with cedar and dried flowers. Aromatic. Medium-bodied with tight, fine tannins and a long, linear finish. Fresh and fine. Drink in 2024 and onwards. 

94pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Barolo Pajana shows harmony and a long, polished texture that builds pretty momentum on the palate and to the finish. The wine is seamless in a manner that Nebbiolo cannot achieve until it has had much more time to evolve and age in the bottle. However, this hot-vintage expression appears wiser than its years, showing a more accessible style that won't require years of cellaring. Only 5,500 bottles were produced.

93pts Wine Spectator

Effusive aromas of rose, strawberry, cherry and mint are enticing in this version, as are the cherry, iron, tobacco and eucalyptus flavors. Spry and lively, this is balanced and lingers with refined tannins. Best from 2024 through 2038. 

 Winemaker Notes

The Pajana plot takes its name from the old road that runs along the top of the hill, an ancient pass that connected Monforte d'Alba and Serralunga, which is still accessible on foot today.

A plot in flourishing balance, with scrupulous attention to the vinification, to carry its exuberance in the glass: a certainty for the last 30 years.
