Tasting Notes

A terrific Barbaresco is the 1998 Rabaja. Complex notes of soy, earth, candied cherry fruit, and cigar box emerge from this concentrated yet intellectually challenging effort. Full-bodied, with a soft attack as well as a tannic finish, it will be drinkable between 2007-2020.

Score: 95Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (137), October 2001

A subtle yet powerful red. Lovely aromas of raspberries, strawberries and flowers. Medium to full bodied, with muscular tannins and a long, spicy finish. Best after 2005.
