2015 Barbera d'Alba “Bricco Ravera”

Piero Benevelli

2015 Barbera d'Alba “Bricco Ravera” Piero Benevelli - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $24.00

Typically in Piemonte, the top sites are reserved for Nebbiolo, but in Massimo Benevelli’s vineyard, Barbera enjoys a privileged position alongside his prized Nebbiolo rows in the upper portion of the south-facing Ravera cru. Massimo describes the 2015 as “a great year, rich and full, well-structured but at the same time soft and velvety.” In other words, just the balance we look for in fine Piemonte reds! It gets along nicely with red sauces and pretty  much any meat; don’t forget to stash away a few bottles for a very pleasant surprise five or so years from now. –Anthony Lynch
