2012 Barolo “Ravera di Monforte” Piero Benevelli - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $54.00

ADD

Massimo Benevelli, son of this Barolo estate’s founder, Piero, started working the vines when he was fourteen, as early in life he knew his calling. His parcel of the Ravera cru has been in the family for six generations. We’ve found that history like that often leads to great wine, and over the past few years, Massimo has delivered. His 2012 Barolo is right in line with the Benevelli style: smoky fruit, hints of herbs and forest floor, and firm structure make this a Barolo apt for a few years in the cellar. Decant for an hour or so if you can’t keep your hands off. –Clark Z. Terry
