G.D. Vajra Barolo Ravera

  • VARIETY: 100% Nebbiolo.

  • VINEYARD AND TERROIR: Ravera is situated at the confluence of two different geological matrices. Over millions of years the layers were superimposed, creating a rather fragile soil subject to erosion, but with an enormous potential. Predominance of Sant’Agata fossil marl, interspersed with sand deposits rich in iron. Average elevation: 360 m a.s.l.

  • HARVEST AND WINEMAKING: Picking starts around October 9th. Thanks to an ideal balance of ripening, maceration lasts 45 days, 5 days with a submerged cap. The malolactic fermentation occurs in steel in spring following the harvest.

  • AGING: 30 months in Slavonian oak casks of 30hL before bottling.
