Castello di Verduno Barbaresco Rabaja 2018
|Italy, Piedmont, Barbaresco
|Castello di Verduno
The 2018 Barbaresco Rabaja is broad and ample in feel, as wines from this site tend to be. Dried rose petal, mint, licorice, black cherry and incense lend striking aromatic presence, but the Rabaja is mostly notable for its overall resonance and feel. Ripeness feels just a bit pushed, but for wines that can be a bit austere in their youth, that is not a bad outcome at all.
