Paolo Scavino Barolo Ravera 2015
"Here is another rookie in the lineup for Paolo Scavino. The Ravera vineyard was purchased in 2015, at 2.7 hectares and about 360 meters in altitude. It is their highest vineyard and the last to be harvested every year. This east-facing parcel is never too hot, always showing cooler-climate conditions than the others, with fine tannins and a good dose of acidity. The 2015 Barolo Ravera is a very tight and and precise wine, with notes of exotic tea that follow blackberry, dried cherry and licorice. This is a great new addition to the Scavino portfolio at this time of important changes for the winery."
"Enticing scents of iris, botanical herbs and woodland berries are front and center on this fragrant red. The firm palate offers Marasca cherry, pomegranate, star anise and white pepper alongside youthfully assertive, fine-grained tannins."
