2016 Vietti "Ravera" Barolo (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1476077 100 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Barolo Ravera is bursting with all of the tension that is the most singular characteristic of this site. Freshly cut flowers, white pepper and mint lend energy to a wine that is very shy and tightly wound today. Then again, it is Ravera. Macerated dark cherry, lavender, mint, crushed rocks and sage race out of the glass in a potent, stunning Barolo endowed with magnificent purity and translucency. The 2016 is quite simply a stunning, breathtaking wine. Don't miss it. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Vietti 2016 Barolo Ravera sees fruit from Novello in a site that faces the Novello castle up on the hill in the distance. This wine offers an impeccable balance between nose and mouth, showing immense purity and power all in one package. That harmony is sublime, and it forces the spotlight on Ravera, especially in a classic vintage such as this. This expression hits all the major cornerstones of a great Barolo, and this vintage does a great job of packaging it all together. Dark fruit, ephemeral spice, balanced acidity and elegant tannins are rolled into one beautiful wine. (ML) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The purity of fruit here is really something, offering aromas and flavors of crushed strawberries and raspberries. It’s full-bodied with chewy tannins that are polished and refined. Love the finesse and strength to this. Yet, what makes this so attractive is the harmony and polish. Better than the 2015. Almost drinkable now. Inner quote mark (8/2020)
