The Bricco Ravera was born from recent investment in the Barolo area, namely in the Cru Ravera di Monforte, under the municipality of Monforte d’Alba. The vineyards in question are young and not yet registered in the Barolo regulations.
In fact, there is a block on the production of Barolo wine, introduced years ago in order to control the growth of production. Which means that only a few hectares each year are granted to new vineyards. For these reasons, we decided to produce this new label of Langhe Nebbiolo, which in the coming years will become a Barolo from a single vineyard, Barolo Ravera di Monforte. Given the origin of the vineyards (within the Barolo area) and the vinification, this Nebbiolo can be defined as a downgraded Barolo. That is why we decided to use the same packaging as the Barolo line.
Very elegant bouquet on the nose with notes of red berries (raspberry and red currant), violet, licorice, indian ink, white pepper, and fresh minty sensations. On the palate it is dry, fresh, well balanced, with a nice minerality, silky tannins and a persistent finish. Ideal with grilled white and red meat, roasted and braised meat, pasta with meat sauce and medium seasoned cheeses.
