From Novello’s best known vineyard we get our
Barolo Ravera. The 2012 vintage, thanks to the thermal excursions
of the final step of vegetative season, strengthens the floral scents
and red fruits hints with spicy and delicate notes. The dominant
taste notes are oriented towards freshness, elegance and overall
balance. The long persistence is characterized by a noble and
round tannins. An ideal wine for combining seasoned cheese and
Wildgerechten, pastagerechten met truffel, diverse stevige kaassoorten.
