2017 Castello di Verduno Rabajà-Bas Barbaresco (PRE-ARRIVAL ONLY)
Pre-arrival price only wine lands mid-October and will be $150.
17.5/20 Jancis Robinson (Julia Harding) – “Light pinky red. Inviting aroma of sweet red fruit and floral perfume, subtle but present. Chalky, layered tannins. Like many layers of tissue paper. Perfume and elegance. Very fine. (JH)”
94 Points Antonio Galloni – “The 2017 Barbaresco Rabajà-Bas is laced with the essence of dark cherry, red plum, mocha, licorice and rose petal. It offers lovely depth in a mid-weight style, with terrific fruit presence and impeccable balance. And that is the key word: balance. The 2017 is all harmony and all class. I would cellar it for a few years to allow the tannins to soften.”
