“The 2012 Barolo Pajana represents an important stylistic change. Domenico Clerico is increasingly moving away from small barrique and is embracing more large Slavonian oak casks. In fact, this wine sees equal use of both small and large wood. The end result is terrific and the wine is both elegant and powerful down to its inner core. The aromas are fine and sharp, and the mouthfeel is textured and rich. Those of us who have followed the evolution of this innovative estate would probably associate Domenico Clerico with contemporary wines and French barrique. But this stylistic trend is not totally unexpected given a region-wide desire to return to roots.” The Wine Advocate #231

Reviews

  • Joseph Newman

    I like this Reserva from RdD. 100% Tempranillo aged for 24 months in oak barrels.

    3.8 stars with more aging potential.

    A deep ruby red and purple shades. Thick long legs in the glass.

    On the nose medium intense aromas of blackberries, black cherries, black raspberries, horse saddle, leather and slightly oak.

  • Soham Phillips

    This amazing powerhouse from Ribera del Duero. Tinto Pesquera Reserva 2012 - Bodegas Alejandro Fernández. Decanting is advised 👌🍷 delicious cherry, vanilla, leather and cederbox with cigars. Milk chocolat, forrest floor, laurel. Great lenght and depth Amazing wine!

  • Gregor Jagermeister

    90 pts Given the quality of the Crianza I really was delighted to find this Reserva, needs way more time to fully flower however, still very enjoyable for me now. The Crianza is ready now, but this shows sleeping intensity and great future potential and longevity, wait a few years however.

    Typical earthy red fruit with good use of oak, dusty vanilla. Weighty, full with a long finish, it will be a star in the future.
