G D Vajra has a bit of the Ravera vineyard located just above Elvio Cogno. This estate used the fruit to make its Langhe Nebbiolo, but as the vines grew into their prime production years, G D Vajra decided to make a Barolo with the fruit instead, starting in 2010. The plot is only half a hectare in size and the vines range in age from 18 to 45 years old. The soils are rich in minerals and iron. The 2014 Barolo Ravera is indeed a fuller and more structured expression. The bouquet opens to dark fruit, iodine and mineral nuances. Ravera is a low-altitude vineyard from an estate that is specialized in high-altitude Nebbiolo farming. That added power is well suited to this thinner vintage. – Monica Larner – 29-06-2018
