Raviola, Barbera d'Alba Superiore DOC

As is often the case, good and beautiful things are always a little hidden and a little uncomfortable to reach, and this is the case at the 'Raviola' estate where there are crops of splendid Barbera. The formation of the soil, the warmth of the earth and deep humidity give the grapes extraordinary qualities of concentration. Vinification with long maceration on the skins and ageing in small Tronçais French oak barrels further enhance the pulpiness of this wine.

A perfect blend of bursting fruit aromas and light balsamic tones. Ideal with very tasty dishes such as game, braised meats and roasts.


Organoleptic characteristics
Concentrated and powerful wine. The colour is a very dark ruby with slight garnet reflections that increase with ageing. The bouquet is intensely variegated, starting with notes of fruit in alcohol and evolving into balsamic and spicy sensations. The taste is very persistent and enveloping.

From 14 % to 15 % depending on the vintage

Goes well with large game dishes, roasts and very mature cheeses.

15 to 20 years
