Rabajà is one of the three or four most famous vineyards in Italy, and a mouthful of this beautifully made example will show you why. Beautiful medium red color; aromas of red fruits, east-asian spice, tobacco, sandalwood and rose. Substantial mouth-filling texture but not bitter or harsh in the least - big but very elegant. Enjoy with risottos, grilled pork tenderloin, and braised meat dishes.

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.
