Intense garnet red colour. Austere nose in the beginning, with complex floral notes that open in the glass after several minutes. Hints of red fruit, chalk and white pepper. Fine on the palate, with ripe red fruit sensations. Taut, compact tannins make this a very classic wine. Vibrant, vertical acidity. Extremely elegant and refined. Best decanted a few hours before serving. The grapes are selected from the single vineyard Ravera in Novello, planted with roughly 4,500 units per hectare. The vines have an average age of 28 years with the oldest part planted in 1935. The roughly 3-hectare vineyard is a wonderful hill with a south-western exposure and a clay-limestone soil.
