Rabajà-Bas was formerly a portion of the Rabajà cru, one of the three or four most famous vineyards in Italy. In the 1990's the cru was divided in two, taking a road that separated the two sites into account. Aromas of wild herbs, rose, and red fruit with a mouth-filling texture. Big, but elegant. Will aged gracefully, and will pair wonderfully with risottos, and braised meat dishes.

A nervy, savory wine, the 2018 Barbaresco Rabaja-Bas has quite a bit of character. Sweet macerated cherry, spice, dried herbs, tobacco, cedar and crushed autumn leaves are all very nicely lifted. Beams of tannin give this deceptively mid-weight Barbaresco a good kick of energy and persistence that builds into a finish laced with balsamic accents. I especially like the translucent expression of Nebbiolo here.
