Tasting Notes

Giacosa Barbaresco Rabajà is intense ruby red in color with elegant orange hues. The nose is reminiscent of ripe red fruits, wild berries, plum, spices, caramel, mocha, and licorice. On the palate it is dry, but extraordinarily full and soft with sweet tannins. Imposing, austere and long-lived, this is a collector's pick, and a wine of grand personality.

95 Points - Wine Spectator

There's wonderful perfumes in this young Barbaresco, with flowers and ripe berries, as well as strawberry. Full-bodied, chewy and long. Massive on the finish. A superb wine. To be released spring 2009.

94 Points - Wine Advocate

The 2005 Barbaresco Rabaja is the densest and richest of these 2005 Barbarescos. Because it is aged in a slightly smaller cask, the wine shows an explosive personality along with some oak nuances that require bottle age to settle down. This muscular Barbaresco resonates on the palate with layers of spiced, mentholated dark cherries, minerals and licorice. It remains a dense, structured and primary wine in need of serious bottle age for the firm tannins to melt away. This, too, is a sublime wine from Bruno Giacosa. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2025. 95+.
