Barbaresco Rabajà 2015
99 points, “The harmony is so mesmerizing. Elegance and length. Bright energy.” – James Suckling
95+ points, “The 2015 Barbaresco Rabajà benefits from one more year in the bottle (compared to its peers) to show expressive and exuberant intensity.” – Wine Advocate
Famed for his ability to select the finest fruit, the bespectacled Bruno Giacosa was a sad loss to the fine wine world when he passed away in January 2018, making wines like this even more sought-after. But as Decanter Magazine puts it, “his style and standards are being maintained by his daughter Bruna.”
Bruno Giacosa has two neighbouring Barbaresco’s. The first is Asili, renowned for its finesse and elegance, and the second is Rabajà, which is full-bodied and rich. Production of Rabajà in 2015 was tiny, only around 3600 bottles, so demand will be huge. The majority was squirrelled away into the cellars of collectors long ago. Expect notes of rose perfume, dried cherries, blackberries, plum crumble, truffle, tobacco, rosemary, juniper and freshly laid asphalt. It’s an incredible wine, that demands to be served alongside slow-cooked stews, wild mushroom, rich truffle dishes or roast game.
