Why We're Buying
Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco Rabajà is a miracle of winemaking. The dark-hued and deeply aromatic nebbiolo dexterously balances complexity and beauty. Give it at least ten years in the cellar for those characteristics to reach their full potential. Pro tip: Bruno Giacosa labels this Barbaresco as Riserva during elite vintages.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Elegant and graceful, this offers cherry, strawberry, rose, tobacco, iron and spice flavors on a linear frame. The steely structure and tension deliver plenty of grip. Balanced in the end, with a chalky feel on the finish.
