The much-anticipated 2013 Barolo Riserva Ravera Vigna Elena is aged in large Slavonian oak casks and only made in select vintages. It breathes delicate truffle notes and forest berry flavors with just a touch of exotic spice. The wine is soft, lush and well textured, and it makes your mouth salivate. Showing the power and inner structure of the Ravera cru, this Barolo should age beautifully over the course of the next two decades.- ML

The vibrant, focused palate offers intriguing tension and intensity while at the same time showing finesse, delivering red cherry, raspberry, licorice and baking spice tones framed by firm tannins. Drink 2023–2043. KERIN O’KEEFE

Bright red cherry, pomegranate, mint, chalk and blood orange fill out the wine's frame effortlessly. Readers will have to give the 2013 a number of years to soften, but it is seriously impressive today. -- Antonio Galloni

No pushover, this features a solid structure that emerges on the long, earth-, leather-, mineral- and tobacco-tinged aftertaste. Once fully integrated, this should be a beauty. Best from 2022 through 2042. 400 cases made, 150 cases imported. — BS

The fruit is powerful in this wine and offers a rich and intense impression on the nose and palate with a thread of dark chocolate, carried by long, chalky and gently drying tannins. Drink or hold.
