VINTAGE : 2017
COUNTRY : Italy
REGION/APPELLATION : Italy, Piedmont, Barolo
VARIETALS : Nebbiolo
Ravera is the most important single vineyard in Comune di Novello. It grows on a very complex underground where marls of Tortonian origin mix with sandstones and clays of the Serravallian period. Our parcels are located in the most southern amphitheater, between 320 and 340 meters asl. This is a terroir that delivers bright aromatics and unrestrained power. 2017 is a vintage that combines ample expressivity in its youth with terrific aging potential.
The aromatics of 2017 Barolo Ravera are an intricacy of red tones, with cherry, rose petals, baked raspberry alongside with orange peel, cedar, korla pear and herbal whiffles of mint, lavender, thyme, oolong tea. The palate is characterized by a zing of iron tones and the mid-palate volume that are such a signature of Ravera, with silky tannins and a profound and long finish.
