1999 Barbaresco Rabaja, Produttori del Barbaresco


1999 Barbaresco Rabaja, Produttori del Barbaresco
From probably the best cooperative in the world, this 99 Rabaja needs an hour to unfold. Then it displays fine notes of forest floor, dried cherries, damson, mushrooms, fir wood and a hint of furniture polish. Some maturity. Very fine. A lovely depth.
The taste is tight and refined with silky tannins and notes of dried strawberries, undergrowth, sandel wood, bonfire smoke and asphalt. Very long. This is starting to drink great but I would wait 3+ years for the next bottle.
