    June 7, 2018 - Roagna Exploration Tastings (Morrell Wine Bar & Cafe): Here I found a dark and rich display with a mix of black cherry, crushed stone minerality and hints of animal muskiness. On the palate, silky, soft textures gave way to mineral-infused black cherry with a balanced mix of zesty acids, youthful tannin and minerals. The finish was long, as its tannins began to settle in, firming up the experience and promising many years of development. Admittedly, I wanted more depth from the 2000 Crichet Paje, yet the wine delivered in spite of the vintage.

    April 13, 2018 - Crichet Paje vertical with jokers, wine #1: Crichet (top of hill in local dialect) is the grand cru of Paje. Ecologic vineyard management and ultra classic cellar practices with 3 months meceration. Minuscule production of 1000-2000 bottles per year, released 10 years after harvest.

    Mean barbwire tannins initially, softens significantly with air. Powerhouse with beautiful maturity notes. Raspberries, saddle leather, tobacco, orange zest, coffee, chocolate and roses. Early in drinking window. BV=0, WV=0

    November 10, 2017 - Ha bisogno di aria per pulirsi e carburare.... veramente particolare il profilo che guadagna complessità e sfumature sempre nuove: dal catrame alle olive al frutto ricoperto di mineralità scura e polverosa, fino a una bellissima parte vegetale. Caldo, pieno, ma scorrevole e sferico. Grande bottiglia

    August 28, 2017 - Gorgeous nose of rosepetals. On the palate, it is full and mineral, with a good lashing of tannin. Long life ahead. Along with a lot of sediment.

    May 28, 2016 - Aged Nebbiolo Table at BerserkerFest (Peking Duck House, 53rd St, NYC): [Double decanted at 8:30am. Cork left out all day.] Smoky red fruit nose. Very sweet but also tannic and sour. Not sure if this will get better. 92?
