Vietti Barolo Ravera 2017
Intense garnet red color. The nose, initially austere, recalls complex floral notes that open in the glass with the passing of minutes, hints of red fruit, chalk and white pepper stand out. On the palate it is fine with sensations of ripe red fruits. The taut and compact tannin makes the wine very classic. Vibrant and vertical acidity. Extremely elegant and refined. Pairs well with game, red meat, and mature cheese.
The 2017 Barolo Ravera is a powerhouse. My impression is that the 2017 is going to develop into something truly special. It has all the energy that makes this site so distinctive, but with an extra kick of fruit density and a whole range of exotic aromatics that make for a truly drop dead gorgeous wine. Bright red/purplish fruit, rose petal, chalk and white pepper build into a finish laced with searing intensity. This is such and impressive wine.
