Wine Advocate 93 points - The 2005 Barbaresco Paje is a relatively fleshy wine for Roagna. It shows lovely juiciness in a vinous style that will require further bottle age for the full range of tertiary aromatics to develop. Mint, flowers and sweet herbs develop in the glass, adding complexity. Today, the 2005 Paje looks to be a relatively early maturing wine for Roagna, which is not necessarily a bad thing given the estate’s reputation for making wines that take an eternity to peak. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. ” (Oct 2011)
