TASTING NOTES

95pts - James Suckling
"The fruit and depth of this wine is very pretty. With brightness and transparency. Plums, and cherries with dried flowers and spices. Medium to full body, bright fruit and acidity. A powerful finish. A fantastic 2014. Drink in 2020."

92pts - Wine Enthusiast
"Woodland berry, blue flower, forest floor, truffle and menthol aromas take center stage on this polished red. It's full bodied and inviting, offering Marasca cherry, pomegranate, white pepper and star anise set against fresh acidity and refined tannins. It's already almost approachable but will also offer years of pleasure. Drink 2020–2026."

92pts - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The Ravera cru of Novello is quietly growing in prestige and consistency. It is becoming one of the latest additions to an elite list of grand cru sites in the Barolo appellation. That quality is demonstrated in a difficult vintage such as this. The 2014 Barolo Ravera is a tight and polished expression with a glossy and gleaming personality. The fruit is fine-tuned and small in range, but it hits the senses with pinpoint precision. The wine shows the taut tightness of its youth and will flesh out with a few more years of cellar aging."

 93pts - Wine Spectator
"Pure cherry and strawberry fruit graces this delicate Barolo. Elements of licorice, tar and mineral add complexity and there is adequate structure. Still, this should be approachable early for the light weight and balance. Best from 2021 through 2036."
