This wine is everything we love about Bruno Giacosa's house style. Stunning perfume on the nose. Savoury and full-bodied on the palate. Pure power tempered with elegance and freshness. The south facing slope furnishes the wine with intense concentration characterised by brooding dark strawberries, and fragrant flowers which leap from the glass. The palate displays cassis and exotic spice allied to a sense of structure that suggests layers yet to reveal themselves. The finish is mineral driven and keeps things crisp on the focused, lingering finish. Stunning.

"This is the exciting new wine being presented by the Bruno Giacosa estate this year. The 2013 Barbaresco Rabajà comes from a half-hectare parcel purchased by Bruna Giacosa (Bruno's daughter) in 2013. Past incarnations of this wine were made with fruit that has now become part of the Asili cru under the revised map of vineyard crus. In other words, the name of the wine is technically the same, but the grapes used to make it are sourced from a different place starting with this vintage. This is a darkly enriched expression with ample power and muscle. The bouquet pours forth a beautiful array of dark fruit aromas with spice, smoke, laurel leaf and balsam herb. There's even a touch of aged cheddar or pecorino cheese that adds a spicy or piquant touch to the finish."
