Why We're Buying
Classic. Traditional. Robust. Vietti Barolo Ravera is the marquee nebbiolo of La Morra. Overflowing with character and energy, it's no surprise that wine critic Antonio Galloni honored 2016 Barolo Ravera with a perfect score, writing, "The 2016 is quite simply a stunning, breathtaking wine. Don't miss it."
The 2018 Barolo Ravera is a wine of real depth and vertical structure. As always, the Ravera is a taut, nervy Barolo built on energy more than volume. Readers will have to be patient, as the Ravera is likely to require a number of years to be at its most expressive. Even in the early going, it is vibrant and full of life. Rose petal, chalk, blood orange and white pepper lend striking exotic top notes that are quite suggestive of what the future is going to bring. What a gorgeous Barolo this is. 95+ Points
