You wouldn’t know Barbaresco is one of my favourite wines as I hardly review them weirdly 😁 so seeing this 21 year old baby @ £83 recently I thought I gotta get me a piece of that 😉 It’s a few years past it’s peak now but still a decent drop although not worth its current 💵

📍 Giuseppe Cortese Rabaja 1998

🏵 89-90 points

🍇 Nebbiolo

🍷 Clear cherry ruby w/ bricked edge

👃 Tortured mashed cherry through tar, tobacco, soot embers, soggy earth, drenched oak & herbs w/ dirty dried red flower potpourri, menthol/mint & shy red berries

👄 Med slight tart body of earthy red cherry w/ a slight dry cocoa & red berry backbone

🎯 Med+ dry woody earthy red cherry/berry cocoa warming finale

Either this specific bottle was sediment heavy, or this production run ain't worth the price!
