Marziano Abbona Barolo Terlo Ravera 2011
Perfumed berry, iris, rose, sweet baking spice aromas and a whiff of balsam lead the nose.
An intense garnet red with orange reflections.
The ripe, full-bodied palate offers wild cherry, fleshy raspberry, tobacco, toast, mocha and cinnamon alongside a tannic backbone and nervous acidity. The heat of evident alcohol closes the finish but doesn't dominate. Drink 2018–2026.
Ravera is Novello’s most famous cru, and makes the best Barolos of the zone. The Ravera is particularly well balanced, with a magnificent body and depth, noble tannins, fruity and spicy aromas, and overall great drinkability.
This wine pairs well with important dishes. Serve at 18° C (64° F) after bringing the bottle to room temperature 24 hours before drinking.
