2001 Produttori del Barbaresco, Barbaresco Riserva, Rabaja (RT91+) This was both the lightest in hue along with the lightest in body weight of Flight #1 (and of the night), showing elegant strawberry fruit and dried rose petal, a surprisingly light palate weight, and a fierce finish defined by mouth puckering tannin and bracing acidity. Firm n’ fit with nary a single gram of excessive palate weight, this Rabaja needs a whole lot of cellaring to put a few pounds on its currently anorexic skeletal frame. Time will reward but for now I suggest steering and saving it for a better day. Drink 2021-2036+
