2007 Ca Du Rabaja - Rabaja Barbaresco Vendemmia 2007
Drinkable is not a word I associate with young Barbaresco and never with any sourced from the famous vigneto Rabajà but it is the story of Renzo Alutto’s wines. Balance, minerality, fruit and well managed tannins stick out like a sore thumb as does the absence of Brettanomyces. A simply delicious, round, ready-to-explore Barbaresco with a range of spiced red fruits flecked with citrus and even bits of mocha. Alutto says it will go the distance through 2025 but really, you can savour the odd bottle now with piece of Reggiano. Great value.
