International Wine Cellar(2001 Vintage) Rating: 92(+?) - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 117, November/December 2004 Good dark red. Superripe, slightly reduced aromas of raspberry and mocha (this usually shows blacker fruits on the nose at this stage). Suave on entry, then musky, mellow and rich; less directly fruity than the Ginestra but simultaneously opulent and stylish. Finishes with big, rich, chewy tannins that coat the front teeth. Both this and the Ginestra seem much more than a year young...
Antonio Galloni(2001 Vintage) Rating: 93/100 - As reviewed by Piedmont Report in Issue 6 , January 2006 Rich ruby. Though less expressive on the nose, the 2001 Pajana offers an irresistible full-bodied profile packed with sensations of violets, toasted oak, spices, licorice, tar, and sweet dark fruit with notable concentration and superb length.
