    Giuseppe Cortese Barbaresco 'Rabaja' 2016

    This wine is made entirely from Nebbiolo grapes grown in Barbaresco's prestigious Rabajà vineyard, located in the Langhe hills just to the south of Cortese’s winery. To achieve the perfect structural balance, the wine is aged for twenty-two months in seasoned Slavonian oak casks, then bottled and cellared for an additional thirteen months.
    Unfiltered to preserve its richness, this remarkably elegant Barbaresco offers concentrated aromas of raspberries, roses, violets, leather and spice. Full-bodied with robust flavor and firm tannins.

    Drank a bottle of the 2010 the other week and it was wonderful. So fine and pretty.

    Despite the nature of the vintage, this 2016 has a bit of thunder about it. Dark cherry, violet, liquorice, earth and baking spices, perhaps the barest whiff of balsamic. Medium-bodied, perfumed, dense and earthy, yet fresh too, with raspberry and spice, a spread of suede-like tannin, orange and red fruits on a long and grippy finish. Think this will become something special.
