“The 2016 Barolo Ravera is tough as nails today, but it has striking inner sweetness and remarkable persistence. Even so, readers will have to exercise a great deal of patience, as the 2016 is not likely to offer much in the way of pleasure for a number of years. Bright red cherry, mint, white pepper, blood orange and dried flowers give the 2016 brilliant top notes to match its finely sculpted feel. Veins of acidy and tannin add razor-sharp precision throughout. I can’t wait to taste this in another few years’ time.” 96 points – Antonio Galloni, Vinous

“Tight, like a tiger. The roar of Ravera is heard in the distance here, but the patient among us will get to tame and stroke the beast. It’s inwardly lit, with rippling firm acidity, red fruits like raspberry and strawberry, alongside some mint, almond and roses. Glides on rails of fine powdery tannin, orange juice and spice, finishes juicy, long and zesty, with a pinch of white pepper. Pent up. Precise. It’s an outstanding wine.” 96+ points – Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
