Barolo ‘Ravera’, Paolo Scavino

The premier release of Scavino’s Barolo ‘Prapò,’ from Novello! Vineyards, which sit at 430 meters above sea level and face east, were first planted in 1999. Soils here are comprised of Marne di Sant’Agata, with limestone being a prominent feature of the soil’s makeup. Fruit harvested by hand in the second week of October. Skin maceration took place over 12 days, followed by a 20-30 day fermentation in stainless steel with indigenous yeast. Wine aged in a combination of French barrique and large casks for 2 years prior to bottling.
