Vietti Barolo Ravera 2015
Intense garnet red color. Very classic and traditional with a robust structure and intense tannins. Bouquet takes a little time to show itself with slight hints of yeast. It opens slowly in the glass touch of spice and menthol. In the final, the powerful structure and concentration soften the tannins potential.

James SucklingThe beautifully fragrant roses are impossible to resist. This oozes charm. Also, there are red cherries, cocoa powder and an array of wild herbs in the mix. The palate has toned yet muscular tannins that build nicely to deliver a concentrated core of ripe red-cherry flavor that holds long, fresh and youthful. Great Barolo. Try from 2022.
DecanterLuca Currado at Vietti offers a very different expression of Ravera that's more extracted and structured than Abrigo's. It shows abundant aromatic force on the nose, with its lush cherry and tobacco aromas. There's fine weight of fruit and considerable density here, and it's robust without being too rugged. It's a solid and complex style, but it's also spicy and lively, and in no way heavy-handed. Long.
