Giuseppe Cortese Barbaresco Rabaja 2013

External Review:

Bright, with cherry, strawberry and floral aromas and flavors, this is backed by a firm yet integrated underlying structure. Beautifully poised for development, so hands off for now. Juicy and long, delivering a lingering aftertaste of cherry, spice and mineral. Best from 2015 through 2027.

The Cortese winemaking moxie really comes through in the gorgeous 2010 Barbaresco Rabaja. Notable elegance and finesse characterize the wine both in the mouth and on the nose. It shows harmony and clarity with defined nuances of dried berry, cassis, spice, dried mint and licorice that lift beautifully from the glass. The fine texture and polished mouthfeel are especially impressive. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2025.

Medium red. Knockout nose combines raspberry musky coffee licorice smoky minerals medicinal herbs and blood orange; elegant and complex. Then juicy tight and youthfully bound-up in the mouth with strong acidity energizing the wine but keeping its fruit under wraps today. Finishes high-pitched and very long with serious tactile tannins calling for at least a few years of patience. This classic vintage of Rabaja should evolve slowly and last very well. 92+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Subtle aromas of sliced strawberries and flowers with hints of citrus. Full body, with bright acidity and a clean finish. So delicious now but better in 2013. James Suckling. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2008 Cortese, Giuseppe Barbaresco Rabaja 750ml

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 g... Wine Enthusiast.
