Barbaresco Riserva Rabaja, Giuseppe Cortese 2011
Complex and perfumed, this red invites you in with aromas of rose, strawberry and sun-kissed hay, then keeps you riveted with flavors of tangy berry fruit, tobacco and iron. Harmonious even in its youth, expanding on the long aftertaste. Best from 2020 through 2043.

What a nose of dried citrus, tangerines, blood oranges, incense, tobacco, cloves, lavender and cedar. Full body, uber-polished tannins and a long, spicy yet taut finish. The complexity and balance take you on a long journey here. Be prepared! Drink in 2023.

The 2011 Barbaresco Riserva Rabajà is a total pleasure bomb. Just as captivating (if not more) than it has been in the past, the 2011 exudes remarkable class. A burst of sweet red berry fruit, hard candy and wild flowers makes a strong first impression, but what impresses most is the wine's sublime freshness.
