Of particular interest is the fullness and generosity of this lovely Barbaresco cru expression. Ripe red fruit and plum notes are backed by black olive licorice powder and a tightly astringent finish. Age this wine 5-10 more years and pair it with game hen and black truffles. Wine Enthusiast.


Winemaker's Notes:

"Barbaresco. Palish ruby with watery rim. Sweet, and hinting at fruit, but more savoury at the moment. Quite classic palate, nothing overworked or overdone. Very well balanced as well as elegant. Drink 2013 to 2020. (WS)" 17+ out of 20 points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages<br/><br/> WINE:<br/> "Barbaresco Rabaja is our most important wine and has an intense and ethereal perfume with fresh notes of violets and red fruit that evolve into scents of spices, cocoa, tobacco, and dry fruit as it ages. A full, dry, and robust flavor, with a rich and harmonious structure; garnet red color." -Winery<br/><br/> WINERY:<br/> "The Cortese family produces and vinifies with passion for 3 generations, using grapes from its 8 hectares of vineyards situated in the heart of Rabaja, historical and renown 'Sori' in the territory of Barbaresco. The cru of Rabaja has a favorable exposition to the south/southwest and it expresses in terms of microclimate, soil, and ripening, offering a product that combines all of the characteristics of a great wine." -Winery
