May 24, 2019 - Nice, mature and lovely Paje with a solid backbone.
Aroma: licorice, tar, tobacco, moist forest floor,
Full-bodied- with very good acid and firm and gripping tannins. Nice fruit concentration.
Excellent length with a hint of sweetness in the finish.
In a great place right now.
May 16, 2019 - After 2 hours breathing, fragrant nose of rose, cinnamon, earthy spices. Mid weight very spicy palate, earthy, minerals, great acid and balance with medium+ finish. Nice wine on the dry side.
May 11, 2019 - PnP. Flott farge. Mørke kirsebær, tørkede roser og litt tobakk. Mjuk munnfølelse med modne tanniner. Virker moden og egentlig perfekt nå. Drikk nå - 2021.
March 20, 2019 - Elegant, balansert, perfekt modning etter et par timer på karaffel
February 25, 2018 - flot farve stadig, syre rigtig din barbaresco.
November 7, 2017 - J&VB with RIBBS (Brunswick House): Obviously neb nose, so having guessed Barolo incorrectly, it must be barb and probably a Prod. Bright raspberry fruit cut through with black tea. Still plenty of grip on the palate, just starting to soften a little at the edges. Lovely. ****
October 27, 2016 - Checking in on the Produttori 2004 Riservas; 10/16/2016-11/7/2016: Seems to be a bit paler in colour and more evolved than others. Strongly balsamic, very savoury nose. Not a perfect bottle, I fear.
August 9, 2016 - Decanted for aeration, then poured. At first the perfumed nose shows some notes of maturity - porcini mushrooms, rust, earth - before the sweet cherry/plum/raspberry fruit opens up and takes over the show. Yes, the palate is surprisingly fruity for such an old-school wine, with ripe tannins and measured acidity. Good length too, slightly warming. Definitely ready, fairly youthful at twelve years, will keep and develop for several years more. Just watch the serving temperature to keep a refreshing balance.
March 19, 2016 - Kirsebær, bringebær, tobakk, lakris, litt sitrus, eucalyptus og salvie. Ikke veldig fyldig, men ok balanse og bra syretrøkk. Bra lengde.
July 23, 2015 - Almost identical tasting note to the one dated 11/29/2014. A very classic and pretty Barbaresco that is more about elegance and tension. Still has many years ahead.
