This sublime Nebbiolo is crafted from top quality fruit from the Ratti family’s prized Ochetti vineyard situated on the opposite side of the Tanaro River from the famed La Morra Barolo cru. Here the sandy soils help to produce an aromatic and refined Nebbiolo which exudes enchanting hints of crushed strawberries, red cherry, rose petals, and sweet spice on the nose.
On the palate there is a streak of bright acidity which complements the rich red fruit character, fine tannins, and firm structure. This is a wine which can be cellared for an additional five or so years, but it is also delicious to drink now alongside a classic Italian dish of fresh pasta served with an intense ragu sauce.
The Ratti family are true Nebbiolo experts and have been working this land since the 1960s when Renato Ratti returned home from working in Brazil to pursue his dream of making his own wine. He purchased his first vineyard close to the Abbey of L’Annunziata in La Morra and became a pioneer in the Barolo region, making one of the area’s first single vineyard wines and creating detailed maps of Barolo’s historical crus. Today the estate is in the capable hands of Renato’s son, Pietro.
