GIUSEPPE CORTESE Barbaresco Rabajà DOCG 2017 – 17 out of 20 points
“Barbaresco. Tasted blind. Mid ruby with orange rim. Savory cherry fruit with a hint of cumin and raw meat. Succulent acidity that is a little mouth-watering, and ripe, coating tannins. Generous fruit on the finish, while the salty, saffron hints provide a minerally edge.”
Thank you Walter for the nice report on the 2017 vintage for BARBARESCO wines!!!
Walter Speller explores the 2017 vintage, which was surprisingly good despite the harsh weather conditions during the growing season. He writes, “The succulent acidity of the 2017 Barbarescos, combined with supple and at times generous fruit, made me wonder if adding tartaric acid at the beginning of fermentation had done the trick in these cases.”
