BAROLO RAVERA

D.O.C.G.

Description

In the 80’s newlyweds Milena and Aldo were already cultivating a little area of Ravera planting 100% Nebbiolo. This wine is the expression of a wait lasting more than ten years, allowing the vines to ripen and the wines to gain the right structure. From the sunniest, most silent and beautiful amphitheater of the area

Variety

100% Nebbiolo

Vineyards and terroir

Ravera is situated at the confluence of two different geological matrices. Over millions of years the layers were superimposed, creating a rather fragile soil subject to erosion, but with an enormous potential. Predominance of Sant’Agata fossil marl, interspersed with sand deposits rich in iron. Average elevation: 360 m a.s.l.

Harvest and winemaking

Picking started on October 9th. Thanks to the ideal balance of ripening, the maceration lasted 45 days, 5 days with a submerged cap. The malolactic fermentation in steel in spring following the harvest

Aging

30 months in Slavonian oak casks of 30hL before bottling

Tasting notes

Brilliant ruby colour. Graphite, ash, cherry and wild red berries. Rust and iodine in the background. The palate is characterized by vigor and energy. Long and tense, with crisp tannins and small wild berries

Curiosity

- In the 80’s Milena and Aldo were cultivating some vines in Ravera. The legend says that Giuseppe was born after a walk to eat some cherries in Ravera
- The first vintage of the new era is 2010
- It’s the smallest single vineyard Barolo production of Vajra
- The Ravera vineyard opens to the south. Its amphitheater form gathers the sun’s rays and the breezes in a complementary manner to that of Bricco delle Viole, which stands out like the prow of a ship: 100m higher and 1 km further north
