Proprietors Nadia Cogno and Valter Fissore have been on a tear of late and show no signs whatsoever of slowing down. The Barolos are made in an enlightened traditional style that showcases the unique attributes of the estate’s various parcels, all located in Ravera.”

Ravera is the name of the cru where the vineyard is located. This vineyard encircles the cellar, it is essentially the hillside vineyard surrounding the estate — the great, classic cru of Novello. Aged 24 months in large (25-30hl) Slavonian oak barrels, followed by 6 months in bottle.

Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 98 points saying "Made by the estate that put this celebrated cru on the map, and showing an enviable combination of elegance and power, this stunning wine opens with aromas of wild berries, underbrush, dark spice and balsamic notes of cedar and new leather. The tense, savory palate is loaded with youthful energy, showing succulent Marasca cherry, raspberry, cinnamon and star anise framed in tightly knit, refined tannins and surprisingly bright acidity for the vintage. A mineral note suggesting iron adds depth to the close.

Jeb Dunnuck scored this 97 points saying "The 2017 Barolo Ravera makes a statement with its intense aromas of licorice, kirsch, pipe tobacco, and spice. Revealing a balanced and chiseled structure, the palate conveys dried raspberry, blood orange, and dried herbs. A great wine from the 2017 vintage, it feels like it will hold up to the test of time."
