Wine Advocate 92 points - As it turns out the 2005 Barbaresco Rabaja offers greater freshness and vibrancy than the 2004. I suppose that is not too surprising considering the estate did not produce a Riserva in this vintage so the oldest vines were used in the non-Riserva bottling. Today the wine comes across as rather primary, which just hints of its perfumed fruit making an appearance. The tannins need some time to soften, but this energetic, focused Barbaresco offers tons of quality, and is likely to be one of the vintage’s best kept secrets. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020. (Oct 2008)

Wine maker notes
Barbaresco Rabaja is our most important wine and has an intense and ethereal perfume with fresh notes that evolve into scents of spices, tobacco and brushwood notes as it ages. A dry, full and robust flavour with a rich and harmonious structure; garnet red colour.

The story of Giuseppe Cortese winery is the story of a family that has been protecting and enhancing Barbaresco region and wines since 1971. The family winegrowing tradition is now carried on by Giuseppe’s children, Pier Carlo and Tiziana, and son-in-law Gabriele, who look ahead with the determination that has always been the Cortese family’s most distinguishing feature.
