Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco Rabajà 2014

There will a 2014 Rabajà. I believe it will be a white label, non-riserva.

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 new government regulations started in 2010.
