WA97: The 2002 Barbaresco Crichet Paje is breathtaking. Roagna had the patience to look beyond the cold, wet summer and early fall. The Nebbiolo harvest took place in late October. For the risk, Roagna was rewarded with one of the greatest Barbareschi made in the last decade, perhaps longer. The 2002 Crichet Paje is a towering effort and a tribute to the greatness of Nebbiolo. It is a pure, dazzling wine with no hard edges, no signs whatsoever of greenness and a seamless expression of fruit. Layers of red fruit emerge effortlessly from this deep, powerful wine. The 2002 Crichet Paje is miraculously pure, with a freshness and vibrancy that is unbelievable. There is more than enough underlying structure to support many years and decades of fine drinking. Simply put, this is a heroic effort from Luca Roagna. As the saying goes, no guts, no glory. There are plenty of guts here. Roagna deserves every bit of praise he will receive for this stratospheric Barbaresco.
