Tasting Note:

A wine of lift and purpose. Very fresh and vivid, small berry alpine fruits and crisp tannins. Juicy with a stony structure and medium body - energetic and zippy. Palate-cleansingly delicious. The only cru in 2016 produced by fermenting half in tronconic wooden vats (45 days on skins) and half rotor-fermenters. This is the second vintage of a new Scavino acquisition – 3ha of 35-40 year old vines in 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. Aged for one year in large oak ‘botti’ and one year in barriques with a maximum of 10 percent new wood.
