VITIGNO Nebbiolo

PAIRING Meat, Cheese, Pasta

Oenologist, scholar, historian, Renato Ratti was a leading figure in Piedmontese oenology, so in love with his land and his work that in 1976 he created the Carta del Barolo, a classification of the best crus in the Burgundy mould. For him, sub-zones and ageing were essential characteristics for making a good wine and exalting the concept of terroir, doing justice to one of the most fortunate places in world oenology. Everything is encapsulated in Ochetti, considered a true cru of the Roero area where the Ratti family owns several small plots.

A didactic and luminous ruby red, it has a floral nose of violets and roses, then black cherry jam and black pepper, underbrush and wet earth. The taste is full-bodied, rich in structure, very precise in its tannic matter and with a remarkable fruity persistence, it pleasantly and gracefully touches every part of the palate, making the next taste almost automatic. A wine one does not tire of easily.

Tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms, grilled meat, frankfurters and potatoes, but also mature cheeses.

The Winery

Oenologist, historian, scholar, Renato Ratti, in 1971, was a great innovator of Barolo and one of the main architects of the cultural (and technical) revolution in the world of Piedmontese wine: the first man to vinify a Barolo from a single vine variety and the first to create the 'Carta del Barolo', a classification of the best Cru in the area in Burgundian style (it was 1976). The Italian wine world owes much to him, especially his ability to have intuited the symbiotic relationship between a given sub-zone, the vintage and the ageing process, indispensable elements for granting soft, elegant and, above all, long-lived red wines. He loved to say of himself that he experienced first-hand every phase of the production of his wines, and it is admirable the love and dedication with which successive generations continue to carry on the tradition of Renato Ratti, that signature that is synonymous with high standards across the entire range, even in the more 'simple' and less emblazoned expressions, such as Dolcetto and Barbera d'Alba. Tasting these wines is like looking out over a panorama that directly overlooks the oldest and most precious hills of La Morra, a panorama that will be hard to forget...
