2001 Giuseppe Cortese Barbaresco Riserva Rabajà - Italy, Piedmont, Langhe, Barbaresco (9/17/2018)
I have to say that I’m not concerned that this wine is drying out like others have noted. If anything I would say this is on the young side of it’s life. I did purchase this bottle directly from the winery in 2016 so the provenance is near perfect…and if I had another bottle of this, I’d revisit it again in another decade+. Med+ body, quite tannic, yet also with a wealth of red fruits that balanced it out nicely. Tasted side by side with a 1971 Barolo Monvigliero and the pair of wines offered a nice contrast. This wine needed food to tackle the tannin…with a little Eposes and prosciutto this wine exploded with a wealth of red fruits and a nice lengthy finish…Outstanding!!!
