The grapes of the Ravera di Monforte cru come from 2 ha of vineyards on the east-facing hillside. It was aged in second-passage barriques for one year, then in 10-year-old oak Botti for 15 months. A Masterpiece of Nebbiolo from the distinctive Ravera Cru in Monforte d’Alba. 

Notes on the producer

It was in 1978 that Piero Benevelli started out with five hectares of vines in Monforte d’Alba and focused on the traditional grapes of Piedmont: Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, and Barbera. His son, Massimo, started his training in the vineyard at age 14 and quickly learned the core principle that still guides him today—to make great wine, you must first have great grapes. The young Massimo Benevelli has developed into an extremely talented Piemontese grower. He exhibits a total command of the production process, from vine to bottle. When tasting his production during various stages of aging there is a consistency, a touch, an intangible quality that is the mark of something great. His wines show character, soul, and originality.
