Giuseppe Cortese – Rabaja’ 2015 – Barbaresco 

The nose is fruity, elegant, gourmand and offers a beautiful elegance and complexity. It reveals notes of blackberry, crushed cassis, elderberries and small notes of red berries associated with a hint of balsamic, ripe wild strawberry, discreet hints of spices / flowers as well as a very discreet hint of blond tobacco and cardamom. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a beautiful acidulous frame, gourmandise, a beautiful juiciness, suavity as well as minerality. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, juicy raspberry and small notes of elderberries associated with small touches of grove flowers / scrubland as well as discreet hints of blond tobacco, Zan and cardamom. Tannins are fine and very slightly dry and young. Good length.
