GIUSEPPE CORTESE Barbaresco Rabajà Riserva DOCG 2013
ANTONIO GALLONI, Vinous – October 19, 2018
The 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Rabajà is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine. That is the good news. The less good news is that, unlike the 2011, the 2013 won’t be ready to drink anytime soon. Readers should expect a muscular, full-throttle Barbaresco of breadth and pure power. A super-classic wine in the making, the 2013 is captivating, even in the early going.

Intense florals – violet and dried rose, dark raspberry, cherry, licorice, spice. Medium-bodied, but deep and sinewy, ripe cherry fruit, intense minerally tightly packed black tea tannin, and despite its darkness and backwards nature, has an alluring mouth-perfume and repressed juiciness throughout; a sure signpost to the direction it will take in the future. And it’s long. A classic.
