93 Points, James Suckling
Compact and really focused, with red berries, dried porcini and brighter floral notes. Medium-bodied with a relatively light but firm tannin framework. The flavors remain enticing and fresh. The lighter overall structure reflects the vintage, but there’s room for expansion here, given time. Try from 2024.
93 Points, Wine Advocate
Moving over to Novello, the Paolo Scavino 2018 Barolo Ravera is slightly more simplistic in this vintage with a tart cherry element that opens loud over the bouquet. You might also notice crushed white pepper, salty limestone and crushed earth. The wine remains subtle in texture with silky tannins and medium weight. Best after 2024.
Our experience in the Ravera vineyard has started in 2015. This hill altitude averages 430 meters above sea level and exposure is east. The freshness in this soil combined with the exposure and the elevation contribute for a long cycle of ripening of the Nebbiolo grapes. We have enjoyed from beginning the distinctive character of the Ravera vineyard where the minerality of the aromatics match with an austere, linear, precise structure lifted by vivid acidity.
