As is often the case, the Rabajà is one the stars.
Rabajà is one of Barbaresco's crown jewels. The site produces wines of impressive power, but that's only part of the story. Rabajà is above all about completeness and elegance.
Produttori's 2016 Rabajà is destined to join the all-time great examples. It's one of those wines that seems to have everything. You really take notice when a seasoned Piedmont expert like Antonio Galloni writes: "the Rabajà is the sort of wine I wish every Vinous reader could taste because it captures the essence of place and vintage with so much pedigree".
It's a wine of soaring nuance and finesse. The incredible balance and length that is a signature of the 2016 Piedmont vintage is on bold display. The harmony and architecture is incredible.
I'm very happy to offer this monument to the great 2016 vintage in both bottles and magnums. This is simply a stunning wine.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Rabajà is brooding in its intensity. Swaths of tannin, acid and mineral notes infuse the 2016 with striking gravitas. A wine of staggering proportion and breathtaking beauty, the Rabajà is the sort of wine I wish every Vinous reader could taste because it captures the essence of place and vintage with so much pedigree and so much class. Black cherry, sage, crushed rocks, menthol and lavender are some of the many nuances that linger on the eternal finish."
