2005 Produttori del Barbaresco Rabaja, Barbaresco Riserva DOCG
Rabajà produces a quintessential Barbaresco, one of the most complete and balanced of the single vineyards. The vineyard lays at the conjunction of the two main ridges that form the Barbaresco village, one starting at Rabajà and going West towards the Tanaro River (with progressively less calcium and higher fertility in the soil) and the other one that goes from Rabajà to Ovello, South to North (with higher calcium content in the soil). The meeting of these two different soils gives to Rabajà its incredible complexity. Bordering both Asili and Muncagota it combines the personality of those two great vineyards with an extra richness due to the South/West warm exposure. First produced as a single vineyard in 1971.
