Bruno Giacosa (Azienda Agricola Falletto) Barbaresco 'Rabaja' DOCG 2013

Region: Piedmont
Wine: Barbaresco 'Rabaja' DOCG
Variety: Nebbiolo
Vintage: 2013

The 2013 Barbaresco Rabajà is terrific. Vibrant in color, aromatics and fruit, the 2013 exudes class from start to finish. The dark cherry, plum, lavender and spice flavors are beautifully delineated throughout in a sculpted, chiseled Barbaresco loaded with personality. The 2013 does not quite have the depth or pedigree of the very finest Giacosa Barbarescos, nor does it reach the level of the 2001 (Riserva), 2004 or 2005, but it is nevertheless very fine. More importantly, the 2013 suggests Giacosa is on the road to making at least sound and competent wines. It remains to be seen if Giacosa can climb the ladder and join Piedmont's elite producers again. Regardless, I was absolutely thrilled to taste the 2013 Rabajà, which is also the first Barbaresco Giacosa has made from a newly acquired parcel that previously belonged to Lorenzo Alutto's Ca' du Rabajà.
