Bruno Giacosa, 'Rabajà' Barbaresco 2016


Bruno Giacosa was making wine before any of us could legally drink it– he joined the family business at the age of 15. In the years that followed he built an unrivaled knowledge of Barolo and Barabesco’s many ‘crus’, exploring the promise of single vineyard bottlings before anyone. His wines from 1978, 1982, 1985, 1988, 1989 and 1990 stand among the greatest ever made, and they’re all remarkable– he refuses to release wine if it isn't. His white label ‘normale’ bottles are one of fine wine’s great values and the best introduction to the deep, textural Giacosa style; the red label riservas – made only in the best years – are at least the equal of any red wine in the world.

Rabaja is a historic vineyard in Barbaresco that makes a crisp, savory style of Barbaresco thanks to its uniquely stony soil. 2016 is a great vintage that emphasized finesse above all else. These two factors - coupled with Giacosa’s top-notch winemaking - make this Barbaresco generous in its fruit but also spicy, and cinnamon scented.

Notes on the Vintage: 2016 in Piedmont gets top marks. Stock up on as much as you can - 2017 is a little rough.
