Vietti Barolo Ravera 2011


SKU 3601111


Intense garnet red color. Very classic and traditional with a robust structure and intense tannins. Bouquet still closed right now with slight hints of yeast. It opens slowly in the glass with hints of spice and menthol. In the final the powerful structure and concentration soften the tannins potential. Food Pairings: Game, red meats, cheeses.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Barolo Ravera opens to a pretty garnet color and dark ruby luminosity. The wine delivers tight concentration and a fine texture that adheres closely to the palate. Blackberry, cassis, spice, leather and tobacco emerge from the glass. Barolo Ravera also offers an earthy tone of white truffle or porcino mushroom. Soft oak density and thick fruit extract give the wine beautiful, full-bodied appeal. Give it ten more years of cellar aging to lose the baby fat.

Wine SpectatorCherry and plum flavors permeate this rich, powerful red. Accented by menthol and leather, this is balanced and fresh, with a lingering aftertaste of mineral and tobacco. Best from 2019 through 2032. 400 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastEngaging scents of wild berry, rose petal, aromatic herb and spice lead the nose. The full-bodied palate slowly reveals red cherry, anise, black pepper, clove and tobacco framed in assertive tannins and bright acidity. Give this time to fully open and develop. Drink 2019-2031.
