Giuseppe Vaira

I am intrigued by Ravera’s indomitable personality. It is crisp like the sound of a Telecaster, straight and electric.

Ravera is recognized as 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 southern amphitheater, between 320 and 340 meters asl. This is a terroir that delivers bright aromatics and unrestrained power, and this is very evident in a late, cool climate vintage as 2018, where Ravera shines thanks to its ample mid palate and racy finish

95 points Vinous

The 2013 Barolo Ravera is tightly wound and austere, with tons of its energy in reserve. Lavender, violet, plum, spice and menthol are beautifully delineated throughout. In some vintages Ravera is explosive, but the 2013 is very much closed in on itself. Attractive scents of rose petal, mint, sweet red berries and chalk infuse the taut, salivating finish. My instincts say this is going to be a very special wine one day. (AG) 95+ (2/2017)

95 points Wine Spectator

An elegant, detailed red, expressing pure violet, raspberry and black currant flavors, shaded by tar and tobacco nuances. Harmonious, with a firm grip of tannins. This should evolve beautifully over the next several decades. Best from 2022 through 2040. (BS)(2/2018)
