Big grapey nose with uncommon depth for a Barbera. Spices. Minerals and gravel. Pulverized gravel that is. Gorgeous blackberry and red berry fruit. Palate is ethereal for a Barbera and so pure. Rich, yet fresh, darker fruits on the palate than on the nose. Textured and slippery. Great freshness and depth and really elegant and pure. This is showing out of its mind. Just stunned how great this is. So concentrated and fresh with just awesome depth. Really long and lovely velvety structure. — 3 months ago

One of the best new Barolos to come into my life. The 17 is another hit. Wow. Nose is so serene and floral. The most vivid florals one can imagine. Just insane. You really smell like the petals of red roses are being rubbed over and over the aroma just keeps delivering that perfect fresh initial aroma. Glorious. What a site Ravera is. Spice as well and glorious mid season cherry fruit. Wow this nose is a 9.8 knockout. Unreal palate with just terrific sweet fruit and energy. An abundance of sweet, velvety tannins and just unreal clarity of sweet mid to late season cherry fruit. Such purity. Such length. Long as the day is in mid July. Wow. A knockout. Stunning. The nose the most intense mineral/umami element. Sweet baking spices starting to develop. This is so good and I did not expect it to be this good. This needs to develop and come together on the palate a bit more but it is all there and I’ll track throughout the day.
-after many hours the nose is ethereal, gorgeous incense and tree bark, earth and truffle. Wonderful texture and the tannins are velvety now and so refined. This will need age but it’s a brilliant wine.
just a gorgeous and very floral nose today. Really compelling. Deep minerals. Flower petals and so vivid and detailed. Juicy, bright, precise and compact. So clean, velvety tannins and wonderful length. Really long and super juicy. Spectacular. Insane freshness. 9.6 to 9.7 overnight. — 2 months ago

Gorgeous translucent color and huge mid season cherries on the nose. Tons of spice and tar. Terrific clarity. Smells bright and lifted. Palate is super pure and juicy with great concentration and freshness. Really engaging freshness and so sappy. Even a hint of finesse which is unusual at this level. Great texture, sweetness and mouthfeel. Good grippy, sweet and velvety tannins. Nice finish and a hint of opulence. Cannot wait for 19 Barolo. Will be a knockout. This gets more and more fine as it airs but still has a level of rustic charm. Terrific. — 2 months ago
Clean, little bit of tanginess, but going to be a crowd pleaser. Had with Sara and Nicole watching kickball. Good for the non-natty crowd. — 4 months ago
