About

Ratings:

96

Blue flower, perfumed berry and camphor aromas segue into flavors of strawberry compote, white pepper and Alpine herb. It’s focused, vibrant and all about finesse, with bright acidity and a pristine finish. Fine-grained tannins offer lithe support. Drink 2029–2039. Abv: 14.5% Kerin O’Keefe April 2023 ©kerinokeefe

95 Audrey Frick - jebdunnuck.com

Aromatically more expressive and ripe with red flowers and fruits, the 2019 Barolo Ravera is more exuberant and open at this stage, with candied cherry, menthol, and sweet balsamic herbs. The palate takes a more savory and coiled stance at this youthful stage, with iron-rich earth, grenadine, and salted orange. Building tannins are in concert with a persistent spine of acidity that will need time to loosen its grip, but this is a fantastic wine to hold and drink 2026-2046.

95 James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com

Bright aromas of lilacs, roses and sliced strawberries follow through to a full and structured palate with lots of polished tannins, vivid acidity and a fresh finish. Needs five to seven years to soften, but impressive energy. Drink after 2028.

95 Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

With fruit from the village of Novello, this wine is more articulate and shows clearer aromas compared to some of the other Barolos in this set of new releases. The Paolo Scavino 2019 Barolo Ravera takes a little extra time to come into focus. There is dark fruit, dried cherry, spice and some light tarry smoke. With time, the wine begins to show more complexity and nuance. Some 8,200 bottles were made.
