2015 Barolo Ravera, G. D. Vajra, Piedmont

This has cool fruit, that’s intense and raspberry in character, with a lovely citrus element too. It’s also balsamic and slightly thyme, with such balance. Amazing length and salinity, too. Needs a long time.

2015 Barolo Ravera, G. D. Vajra, Piedmont
G.D. Vajra

Surprisingly, given their access to great terroir, this estate was only founded in 1972 by Patriarch Aldo. Named after his father Giuseppe Domenico who planted most of the family’s vines, the property sits at one of the highest points in Piedmont, so the grapes ripen later than anywhere else in the region. When these slow-ripening grapes are pressed, it gives their wines a unique, fresh and elegant style. They’re Barolos for Burgundy lovers.
