Barbaresco Rabajà is Cortese`s most important wine and it 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.
Aged 20-22 months in big Slavonian oak barrels, then 10 months in bottle.
The Barbaresco “Rabajà” by Giuseppe Cortese is one of those wines that, once established, it is impossible to forget. One of those wines that marks the time, which is not in any way tarnished by fashion.
