Juicy & Spicy

Réva winery focuses on producing wines of excellence with extreme attention to the particular characteristics of each grape variety and the utmost respect for diversity.  All the vineyards are cultivated organically and the estate is run by a group of young professionals who value both tradition and innovation.   

The grapes of Barbera grow in Monforte d'Alba, San Sebastiano Novello and the special single vineyard of Ravera, on clay and sandy soils. The grapes macerate on the skins for 30 days and, after pressing, the wine ages for 12 months in tonneaux and barriques.

On the nose, this wine shows outstanding character with hints of red berries, juicy fruits and vanilla from time spent in barrel. Full and persistent flavours of cherries and wild blueberries on the palate with hints of spice and a medium long finish.

This Barbera d'Alba is very versatile, it is a real food-wine. Have fun pairing it with spiced dishes and savoury meats: grilled pork, braised lamb dishes, spaghetti and meatballs; or risotto with mushrooms!

92 points - Michael Godel

The barbera comes from three sources, Monforte d'Alba, San Sebastiano Novello and Ravera, the latter also being the source for one of Réva’s single-vineyard Barolo. So typically Réva in that this just does not feel, act, look, affect or drink like any other Barbera d’Alba. Though it’s clearly a varietal wine it just seems like it swims with nebbiolo more so than similar wines of the ilk and with a depth that does not rely on overkill of wood to make that happen. Sure you feel some texture and spiciness from the barrel but the fruit is just so open, accentuated and intense. Not a big barbera per se (though it does list at 15 per cent) but instead one that speaks in exclamations. Réva’s bd’A stands up to be counted, lauded and noticed. Drink 2023-2026. Tasted May 2022.
