Marziano Abbona Barolo Terlo Ravera 2007
Wine EnthusiastBarolo Terlo Ravera opens with soft oak tones that still need time to integrate. But the great promise of this wine are its beautiful layers of ripe berry fruit, cassis, leather, chocolate and toasted coconut. The concentration is inky and thick and the finish is very long lasting. Drink after 2018.
Wine AdvocateThe 2007 Barolo Terlo Ravera is a little more reserved than the Pressenda. It comes across as rather inward, with lovely definition in its sweet red fruit, mint and floral notes. The Terlo Ravera impresses for its length and energy rather than for its sheer power. It, too, is dazzling, though, and should drink well for a number of years. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
Wine SpectatorThough rich, this is also beefy, with black cherry, broth and tobacco notes. The tannins are firm, but there's plenty of flesh and ripe fruit for balance. Fine length. Best from 2014 through 2028. 200 cases imported.
