Mission Codename Nobel Italiano

It’s highly unlikely that we’ll ever get a 40+ percent off deal on a 98-pointer single-vineyard cult Barolo.

Like ever.

Especially with such a legacy. Other big names like Vietti, Paolo Scavino, Giuseppe Rinaldi, or G.D. Vajra would have never made their Ravera masterpieces if Elvio Cogno had not purchased and moved to this hilltop in 1990. Countless Raveras that consistently hit in the 95-100 later, this Cru is a legend every Barolo maker dreams of, but a few have access to. Here’s the original ‘estate’ Ravera, in all its glory.

A Wine Enthusiast explains, “Cogno’s first Nebbiolo harvest was in 1991, and his first Barolo was released four years later as Barolo Ravera, marking the first time the name of this now lauded vineyard appeared on the label.”

Collectors and connoisseurs, you don’t want to miss this timeless classic.

98 Points – Wine Enthusiast

“Made by the estate that put this celebrated Cru on the map, and showing an enviable combination of elegance and power, this stunning wine opens with aromas of wild berries, underbrush, dark spice and balsamic notes of cedar and new leather. The tense, savory palate is loaded with youthful energy, showing succulent Marasca cherry, raspberry, cinnamon and star anise framed in tightly knit, refined tannins and surprisingly bright acidity for the vintage. A mineral note suggesting iron adds depth to the close.”
