Tasting Note:

The family’s original 1.83ha Barbaresco vineyard from 1953, Paje is an ampitheatre in the centre of the Barbaresco commune facing south west and planted on limestone soils, sitting just below Rabaja, at 225 metres altitude. Close to the water’s edge, rooted in the marne sant’agat fossile bedrock, sheltered, & facing south west, the wines tend to be reserved, brooding, but refined and intense. Very complete, nervy and noble Barbaresco. The 2016 is in this classic style - bright minerally red fruit with notes of cherry stone and a strong mineral component. 14.10% 8,000 bottles were made.
