Barolo Riserva 'Ravera' Lo Zoccolaio 2015

Barolo Riserva "Ravera" Lo Zoccolaio is a straightforward and magnetic red wine that will enchant Nebbiolo lovers and neophyte explorers alike. Its grapes come exclusively from vineyards in the communes of Barolo and Monforte d'Alba, followed by 42 months of maturation in barriques and a further 6 months of refinement in bottles. The colour is ruby red, with time acquiring nuances tending towards garnet; the aromas released are of red pulp fruit and sweet spices, with a slight hint of leather and toasting. The taste is structured, warm, enveloping and with a long, velvety finish
