1995 Clerico, Barolo Pajana, Piemonte, Italy

It’s one of those wines that on the objective scoring board not necessarily gain the highest score. However this wine was drunk in company of good friends and food - ravioli with ricotta cheese and spinach – and the drinking pleasure was supreme. I have tried it 3-4 times now, but I think it’s has been almost five years since my last experience. The wine has now entered its peak drinking window and comes across with a Burgundy resemblance of purity and sweetness, though the cherries are somewhat darker and there is a touch of classic Italian warmth with raspberries perfumes. Taste has its fair amount of dry particles, but very classic and pleasurable to drink with or without food. (93)
