Notes from the Winemaker:

Red garnet color with orange highlights. A complex nose of spice, violets and fresh red fruit aromas leads to a palate that is full bodied, structured and refined with a persistent finish marked by minerality and fine tannins. Rabaja represents one of the most important single vineyards of Barbaresco. Bruno Giacosa's vineyards are comprised of 0.6 hectares, planted in calcareous clay soils.

Ratings & Reviews

95 Points - James Suckling (2016 Vintage):
"Wow. Such beautiful, sweet fruit on the nose, offering strawberries, fresh flowers and orange peel. Full-bodied with rounded tannins that are strong yet ripe and coated with pretty fruit. Drink after 2023." - James Suckling (August 2020)


95+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2015 Vintage):
"This beautiful wine was released in January and is on the market now. The 2015 Barbaresco Rabajà benefits from one more year in the bottle (compared to its peers) to show expressive and exuberant intensity. The bouquet delivers a special floral note that resembles lady's perfume of fragrant rose potpourri, but these ethereal tones only last for the first minute or two. After that, you get a solid core of dark fruit with blackberry and dried cherry. The wine is nicely contoured by firm tannins and lasting acidity. The Rabajà vineyard site measures only half a hectare, and 3,600 bottles are made each year as a result." - Monica Larner (June 2019)
