Rabajà Barbaresco Riserva DOCG
Piemonte

This 12.5 acre vineyard is located where the two ridges of Barbaresco meet. A brother wine to Muncagota, this vineyard has a slightly warmer microclimate.  Rabajà enjoys a southwestern exposition that gives the vines access to the sun throughout the afternoon. Considered a quintessential Barbaresco, this wine is well-rounded, exhibiting elegance and power, as well as, tannins and fruit.

The first vintage of Rabajà was produced in 1970.
