From the single Ravera vineyard located in the municipality of Novello, with about 4500 plants per hectare of 26 years of average age. The oldest part was planted in 1935. Ravera di Novello is a fabulous hill with south-west exposure, with calcareous-clay soil. With an area of approximately 3 hectares. The fermentation lasts about 4/5 weeks in a steel tank in contact with the skins. This time includes pre and post fermentation maceration with the use of the ancient method of the submerged cap. Slow malolactic fermentation in barrels until late spring. The wine therefore remains for over a year on the lees of malolactic fermentation without racking. The aging lasts 32 months in large oak barrels.
Intense garnet red color. Very classic and traditional with a robust structure and intense tannins. Bouquet takes a little time to show itself with slight hints of yeast. It opens slowly in the glass touch of spice and menthol. In the final, the powerful structure and concentration soften the tannins potential.
Wine with great evolutionary perspectives.
Taste it at a temperature of 16 ° C combined with beef cheek in red wine.
