Barbaresco Rabaja Riserva Produttori del Barbaresco Premier 2005
"The 2005 Barbaresco Riserva Rabaja reveals gorgeous inner perfume in a powerful, structured style. This is a big, hulking Barbaresco, but its potential is evident, as the wine’s balance is impeccable. Still, readers will have to exercise considerable patience here. I have seldom been disappointed by older bottles of the Rabaja and expect the 2005 will turn out to be another fine vintage for this bottling as well. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030...94." WA #185
External Reviews for Barbaresco Rabaja Riserva Produttori del Barbaresco Premier
Good full red. Sexy, ripe aromas of raspberry, mocha and underbrush. Sweet, lush, full and sweet; in contrast to a number of these 2005s, this displays plenty of baby fat today. Not yet complex but finishes broad, full and long, with ripe, building tannins. Shows less acid cut than the Moccagatta but more tannins.
Very floral, with blackberry and plum character. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and silky, refined tannins. Gorgeous finish. Best after 2008.
A delicious nose of ripe fruit and Indian spices, with perfumes. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a beautiful core of fruit. Features blackberry, chocolate and citrus fruit on the finish. Best after 2011.
Sattes Rubinrot mit granatroten Reflexen; betörender Duft nach Erdbeeren und frisch geschnittenen Blumen, Weichselkirschen, Dörrobst und Röstaromen. Im Gaumen vollmundig, klassisch, präsente, feinkörnige Tannine, mineralisch, Himbeeren und florale Aromen. Elegant und lang anhaltend im Abgang.
The 2001 Barbaresco Riserva Rabaja is more generous than the Ovello, with a sweeter and more expansive core of ripe fruit and suggestive nuances of roses, menthol, licorice, minerals and tar. It offers outstanding length as well as definition with, building, yet fine tannins and a gorgeous balsamic note to cap off the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021.
