Tasting Note:

This is the first vintage of a new Scavino acquisition – 3ha of Ravera which, at 430 metres altitude, is their highest vineyard and the last to be harvested. A cool and windy terroir that faces east from which only 6000 bottles are produced, the rest is sold in bulk. Powerful, explosive and energetic on entry to the palate.

This needs time to settle but promises much.
