92 points Robert Parker: "The large-scaled 1997 Barbaresco Rabaja requires 2-3 years of cellaring, unusual for the vintage. An opaque ruby/purple color is accompanied by aromas of chocolate, coffee, blackberry and cherry fruit, as well as noticeable new oak. This immense, powerful, rich, moderately tannic Barbaresco will be at it finest between 2003-2016." (06/01) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Ruby red, with a garnet edge. Very open aromas of violet, berry and sweet spices. Full-bodied, with very fine tannins and well-integrated fruit. Dried dark fruits and Indian spices on the finish. Chewy too. Give it a little more time.--1997 Italian blind retrospective. Best from 2008 through 2016." (Web only, 2007)
