Barolo Ravera DOCG 2015 - Marziano Abbona

A real oenological gem, this Barolo Ravera DOCG proposed by Abbona. This is a 2015 vintage, so it is still a relatively young wine, capable of giving us great satisfaction for many years to come. This 100% Nebbiolo, ça-va-sans-dire, is the result of careful processing in the cellar. Destemming and crushing precede the pellicular maceration phase, which continues for about 24 hours at a controlled temperature and leads to the start of spontaneous alcoholic fermentation, i.e. triggered by indigenous yeasts. This continues for about a month, during which the wine is subjected to daily pumping over. At the end of this period, a further 40 days of submerged cap maceration is carried out. Then racking and decanting into barrels. First in 500-litre barrels for 9 months, then in 50-hectolitre barrels for the next 21 months. Only then does the final blending and bottling take place which, in the case of this vintage, took place in June 2018. A super-elegant wine, this Ravera presents itself in the glass with a beautiful clear colour. The nose is fine and delicate, with aromas of ripe red fruit and dried flowers, combined with a hint of spice. In the mouth it is strong and vigorous, with a sweet entry and a delicate but persistent finish. A memorable vintage for this Barolo. To uncork, without haste, when the menu is serious. Roast or grilled meats. Mushrooms and truffles, when the season is right.

Celso Abbona, great-grandfather of the current owners of the company, was among the first of his generation to believe in the potential of the Dogliani area and to promote Dolcetto, the grape that on these hills was able to reach excellence. This is how the company was born, with a lot of hard work and passion. It was Celso himself who planted the legendary vineyard of Bricco Doriolo, in the hamlet of Santa Lucia di Dogliani, which today represents one of the most prestigious cru of the denomination. Over the years, and with the entry of new generations, the company has grown and expanded, particularly towards the Langhe. Those were the years when the challenge of Barolo was still to be won. The first plots of land were purchased, allowing the company to harvest and bottle the first Nebbiolo. And it was a success. Today, the new generations carry on the work, continuing with the same commitment to produce great wines of the territory. The company can count on about 52 hectares of vineyards in the municipalities of Dogliani, Monforte d'Alba and Novello, all conducted in a sustainable way, to produce good wines, in full respect of nature. Many of the family's vineyards, still worked by hand according to methods handed down through generations, are made up of vines that are up to 60 years old. They are plants of rare beauty and capable of expressing the maximum quality of their terroir.

Technical Data Sheet

CHARACTERISTICS
  • TypeStill dry red wine DOCG
  • Location Piemont
  • Grapes Nebbiolo 100%
  • Sensations The 2015 vintage is all about elegance: Ravera is clear, fine and delicate on the nose, where it develops aromas of ripe red fruit and dried flowers combined with a hint of spice. It extends to the palate with strength and vigour, but the entry is sweet and the finish soft but lasting thanks to Novello's gentle, enveloping tannins. A certainly memorable vintage for our Barolo "Ravera".
  • Vinification Vinification: destemming-crushing followed by pellicular maceration for 24 hours at 15°-18°C. Start of spontaneous alcoholic fermentation using indigenous yeasts in contact with the skins in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks with peaks of 32°-33°C; duration 25 days with daily pumping-over; at the end of this period, submerged cap maceration at 22°C for 40 days. Dry racking, racking and decanting into barrels. Malolactic fermentation: completely spontaneous during the submerged cap maceration. Ageing: in 500 litre barrels for the first 9 months, then racked into 50 hectolitre oak casks for the following 21 months. Blending and bottling took place in June 2018. Then resting in bottle at a constant temperature of 14° C for fifteen months before release.

  • Terrain Analyses show silty-clayey soil, with a low sandy content and high limestone content. The grain size index (ratio of sand/silt + clay) indicates a very fine texture of the soil explored by the roots. This is a very light soil that gives the wine made from the Nebbiolo grapes grown on it power, fruit, harmony, elegance and great longevity.

    This offers some deeper, darker fruit aromas, as well as cedar and walnuts with an earthy edge and toasted spice. The palate carries abundant ripe red-cherry flavor and is framed in succulent, juicy tannins. Sits in an approachable, balanced mode. Drink or hold.
