Tasting Notes

The 2015 Barolo Ravera captures all the best the vintage has to offer. More importantly, it has that extra level of textural richness and sweetness that the Bricco delle Viole does not have, at least not today. Creamy and beautifully textured in the glass, the 2015 is a total winner. Bright red raspberry and pomegranate fruit notes are lifted, while expressive floral and blood orange overtones add brightness. The 2015 suggests that the Ravera might, in time, become the flagship wine here. Don't miss it! 95pts Drink 2023-2041 Antonio Galloni – Vinous Media

Spicy, red cherry to dark cherry, ironstone and mineral, dried rose/vanilla. Moving into fuller bodied, but still fine, firm but supple tannin, fresh, acidity is tight and controlling, and a feature of the wine. Length is top shelf. Superb. Quiet power with intensity and class. The aftertaste moves into raspberry and other red fruits. Yes,  thanks very much. Gary Walsh - Winefront
