For five generations, the Vietti family has nurtured their winemaking legacy in the heart of Le Langhe, Piedmont, specifically in Castiglione Falletto. Their dedication is evident through 33 estate vineyards spanning all 11 communes designated for the cultivation and crafting of Barolo. Additionally, they venture into Roero for Arneis and Agliano Asti for Barbera and Moscato. In 2016, the American Krause family acquired Vietti, but the stewardship of the Vietti Estate remains in the capable hands of current-generation winemaker Luca Currado-Vietti and his wife Elena Penna-Currado. Together, they meticulously oversee the production of some of Le Langhe's most exquisite and authentic wines.

The grapes for this particular wine hail from the renowned MGA "Ravera" vineyard nestled in the municipality of Novello. This vineyard boasts a soil composition rich in limestone, clay, and Marls of Saint Agatha, while its western/south-western exposure on the hillside contributes to its unique character.

The 2019 Barolo Ravera emerges as the epitome of mineral intensity and saline character within the Barolo lineup. It dances with notes of crushed rocks, white pepper, delicate flowers, zesty orange, red berry fruit, and vibrant acidity, all meticulously woven into this finely sculpted and chiseled Barolo. Enthusiasts who seek Barolos that exude energy and tension will be captivated by the Ravera. Over the years, this Barolo has held a special place in the hearts of many, and the 2019 vintage adds yet another magnificent layer to Vietti's dark horse—a wine that has consistently challenged for the throne over the past decade, often emerging victorious.

The 2019 Barolo Ravera is the most intensely mineral and saline of the Barolos. Crushed rocks, white pepper, flowers, orange zest, red berry fruit and bright acids all run through this finely sculpted, chiseled Barolo. Readers who enjoy Barolos of energy and tension will adore the Ravera. I have always had a soft spot for this Barolo. The 2019 is another magnificent dimension of Vietti's dark horse, a wine that over the last 10-12 years has routinely challenged for the crown here, and often won!

The 2019 Barolo Ravera is a wine of impact and power, and it is also a wine of the future. That's because Ravera (in the village of Novello) is one of the break-out sites that continues to awe and surprise despite a changing climate. Indeed, its high elevation and open panorama toward snow-capped mountains keeps the microclimate ventilated but also protected. Luca Currado affirms that Ravera is what Cannubi was just a few years ago. Wines from Novello also show an extraordinary but very unique evolution in which the tannic impact of the wine remains firm. This vintage shows deep intensity and good freshness. It fully covers the palate from front to back.

Tasting Profile

The nose, while stark to begin with, reveals complex floral notes that emerge after a few minutes in the glass. Striking notes include red fruit, chalk and white pepper.
It is fine on the palate, with hints of ripe red berries. The taught, compact tannins make this a very classic wine. The acidity is vibrant and vertical. Very elegant and refined. We recommend decanting a few hours before serving.
