Write a Review

Vintage: 2018

Varietals: Nebbiolo

Farming: Organic

The 2018 Barolo Ravera shows a striking balance of all tones. Red and dark fruits on the nose are interlaced with mineral hints and the iron tones which are such a signature of Ravera. The wine has brilliant drinkability, with a layered, ample mid palate and a racy finish. 

In 2018, Ravera was harvested over two days, on October 10th and 14th. Grapes were sorted manually three times: directly on the vine, as whole clusters on the sorting tables, and lastly as single berries. Vinification was carried in custom-designed vertical tini, with gentle punch down and rinsing of the cap. It lasted 58 days, including a submerged cap maceration. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation took place in the following Spring. AGING: The 2018 Barolo Ravera aged for 30 months in large Slavonian casks of 25 and 50hL. It was bottled on July 7th 2021.
