2001 Bruno Giacosa, Barbaresco Riserva, Rabaja (RT98+) The star of the night, the already legendary Rabaja Riserva, shows up in full celebration mood. Like a Testarosso that has just pulled in, one can simply not ignore the captivating allure of its extravagance and persona. It’s a Nebbiolo magnet; ripe, delineated, layered with intensity and complexity, and always showing those beautiful red fruit notes with a classic brown sugar accent that routinely defines Giacosa’s Riservas. Amazing in every measure, like hitting the Power Ball, well, almost. If you’ve got this in the cellar you’ve got bank. If you don’t, find some friends who do or buy some! Drink 2021-2046+
