Not the Riserva, but no slouch, this wine is still alive and drinking. It may even show a bit more fruit that the '67 Riservas. With proper handling (time to rest, and proper decanting) this is a real treat.
Crichet Paje comes from some very old vines in the Paje vineyard. Luca Roagna explains that for years "because of the complications of local regulation we had to choose between callling the wine Barbaresco, or Crichet Paje — we could not call it Barbaresco Crichet Paje, so we chose to call it Crichet Paje... Crichet Paje is intended to be a unique and particular wine, an expression of our identity." It wasn't until 1996 that they were able to label the Crichet Paje as "Barbaresco Crichet Paje".
Paiagallo 2014 shows a lot of complexity for such a young wine - at first very savory and ripe, then lovely bright cherry fruit on the palate and finish.This is clearly a wine for the cellar, as behind (or perhaps under?) the beautiful clarity of fruit is that brooding core of material that will take years to fully express itself. Quite a majestic wine, and a triumph for the vintage. Jamie Wolff
“Pie” means foot — or root. “Rupestris” refers to American rootstock; these vines were planted more than 40 years ago.
Old Cordero Barolo is great wine (recent vintages are in a fairly heavy, oaky style that we don't love so much, but the old stuff...). A couple of years ago we had several cases of this wine, which afforded multiple tasting opportunities; at this price the wine is a steal.
