About the wine

Tasting notes

The 2017 captures the radiant side of the year, which gives the wine so much appeal and also softens some of firmness that can make Rabaja Barbarescos hard to taste in their youth, although there is plenty of underlying structure. What i love most about the 2017 is the way it envelopes all of the senses. It is, quite frankly, utterly irresistible.

Expert review

Barbaresco. Tasted blind. Mid ruby with orange tinges. Deep, brooding nose of ripe, sweet fruit and a little dramatic. Hints of iron, too. Gorgeous, lively acidity cuts through ripe fruit that is still a little backward. Fine sandy tannins complement the whole. Really youthful and not ready yet, but with lots of promise. Very elegant palate weight.

The Grape

Nebbiolo

Often referred to as the king of red grapes, Nebbiolo is responsible for some of the greatest wines in the world. The regions of Barbaresco and Barolo, in Piedmont, Italy, create the most revered expressions of the variety and have set the benchmarks for the world over. Nebbiolo is quite light in colour, dry and delicate but packs a punch in aroma and flavour with notes of rose, tar, cherry, red berries, blood orange, licorice, leather, terracotta and earthy herbals. These wines have high acidity and high tannins, making them extremely age worthy that deepen in complexity over decades. Simply stunning wines!
