Can't Miss 2013 Piedmont
2013 Produttori del Barbaresco Rabajà Riserva

Posted by Ian McFadden

For decades, Produttori del Barbaresco has been the source of some of Piedmont's greatest values.

Today, this comes into sharp focus.

When you combine the long track record for aging, the vintage and elite status of the Cru Rabajà, it adds up to a really smart buy.

The 2013 vintage in Piedmont is all about finesse and clarity. The easy comparisons are 2010 and 2008, two of our favorite recent vintages. In the lithe and energetic 2013 vintage, Produttori's Rabajà really shines in all its multi-dimensional complexity.

Simply put, Rabajà is a very, very special patch of earth for the Nebbiolo grape. Rabajà produces wines of impressive power, but that's only part of the story. Rabajà is above all about completeness and elegance.

The 2013 Rabajà has a startling refinement and radiant precision. It possesses an emphatic lift and an animated minerality with high-toned red fruits, herbs, dried flowers and earth.

For me, this is a don't miss deal. I created special 4-pack pricing so that you could go deep on the 2013 Rabajà. I'm really excited to check this out a decade or two from now.
