About the Winery
Hailing from Piedmont, the northwest corner of Italy, Réva has a dynamic relationship with tradition: respect without excessive obedience, knowledge without stuffiness. This attitude is reflected in the search for a personal style that is free to communicate their character through the extraordinary expressive possibilities of the Langhe and the Barolo area.
The winery focuses on producing wines of excellence with great attention paid to the particular characteristics of each grape variety and the utmost respect for diversity. All the vineyards are cultivated organically and monitored directly by the winery team.
The winery’s roots go back to 1867 however In 2010 the winery underwent a thorough reconstruction and the acclaimed Gianluca Colombo became head oenologist. Despite his youth, Gianluca has a great deal of experience and in 2014, received the Premio Gambelli award – a prestigious award for winemakers under 35.
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.
