Rabajà produces a quintessential Barbaresco, one of the most complete and balanced of the single vineyards. The vineyard lies between the two main ridges that form the Barbaresco village, one starting at Rabajà and going West towards the Tanaro River (with progressively less calcium and higher fertility in the soil) and the other one that goes from Rabajà to Ovello, South to North (with higher calcium content in the soil).
The meeting of these two different soils give Rabajà its incredible complexity. Bordering both Asili and Muncagota it combines the personality of those two great vineyards with and extra richness due to the South/West warm exposure.
The 2014 Barbaresco Riserva Rabajà is powerful, dense and explosive, with tremendous intensity of fruit and structure. The Rabajà is dark and potent – as all these wines are – but the tannins and acids give the wine considerable tension and energy. The Rabajà is a powerful, towering wine endowed with massive structure and intensity to burn. Like so many of these wines, the Rabajà is somber and brooding in feel.
Antonio Galloni - Vinous
The 2014 Barbaresco Riserva Rabajà shows excellent textural richness with dark fruit, followed by notes of tobacco and tilled earth. Black truffle and dried fruit converge on the bouquet to add to the intensity. You really appreciate the freshness and sheer power of this succulent, well-structured and medium to full-bodied Barbaresco. This one's the real deal.
Monica Larner - Wine Advocate #243 (Jun 2019)
This red is opulent and lushly textured, providing a backdrop for pure cherry, black currant, floral and graphite flavors. There's a firm grip and plenty of energy here, building to the long, mineral-tinged finish. Best from 2022 through 2042.
It’s a beautiful thing to smell. Ripe raspberry and red cherry, liquorice root, camphor, orange peel, rosy perfume and little exotic spice. Medium-bodied, light but dense, with succulence of red berry fruit, bright and sappy orange juice flavour and acidity, a firm carriage of juicy Nebbiolo from front to back, with just a little chalk dust austerity and scratchiness to the tannin and acid tang on the long finish marking it as a product of the 2014 vintage. It’s brightly lit, and very impressive. Really like this.
