WA: Fragrant and loaded with finesse, this stunner opens with enticing scents of rose, violet, perfumed berry and camphor. Smooth and extremely elegant, the vibrant, savory palate features juicy red cherry, blood orange and crushed raspberry while star anise and mineral notes suggesting rusty nail—and that’s a good thing—add depth. Bright acidity and lithe tannins lend balance and seamless support. It’s all about elegance and energy.
JS: Already exuding complexity on the nose. The red fruit is colored with a variety of nuances, from dry earth and mild spice to flower petals and light citrus notes. Medium-bodied with well-integrated tannins that sink into the fruit mid palate but re-emerge right at the end to give a firm finish. Despite that, the fruit drive is relentless. Needs time to even out. It will gain more breadth, too. Exceptional Barbaresco that highlights the excellence of the terroir here.
WC: Elegant and of unmistakable clear and direct nature, it shows notes of hibiscus, calendula, lemon blossom, grapefruit juice, dehydrated cherries, lavender and rosemary. Medium-full body, soft and enveloping tannins that give an exciting sip and a graceful and noble finish that shows everyone what Rabajà is made of.
