Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco Rabajà 2014

The 2014 Rabajà was released early in 2018.

Giacosa bottled a Barbaresco Rabajà from 1996 until 2005. That parcel was classified as Asili by new laws which made vineyard boundaries precise. This wine is from a different parcel of vines which Giacosa purchased from Lorenzo Alutto in 2013, and Giacosa began bottling in 2013.

Note that these labels no longer have the village name on the label. That is, these say just Rabajà rather than Rabajà di Barbaresco as in the past. Also, the individual numbering of bottles is gone as well. All of this is the result of the winery's interpretation of government regulations which started in 2010.

Here's a photo of a botte I took at the winery in the summer of 2016.
I believe this contained all of this wine since the bottle label says
there were 3,616 750ml bottles made. This is 27.12 hectoliters, which
is just a little less than the 27.93 hectoliters indicated on this barrel.
