Elegant & Powerful

Réva manages vineyards in some of the most important Langhe crus: Ravera in Novello, Lazzarito in Serralunga and Cannubi in Barolo. 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 for this Barolo come from carefully selected vineyards in Monforte d'Alba, Novello, Serralunga d'Alba and Grinzane Cavour. Fermented spontaneously on the skins for 35 days, it has been aged in oak barrels for 24 months.

A limited series of only 4,500 bottles, this Barolo delivers aromas of sage, rose petals, red-skinned berry and a delicate hint of tobacco. The palate is full, deep and juicy, with peppery notes of Morello cherry and clove, and delicate tannins.

Enjoy this Barolo with beef, game and stews. Classic pairing with truffles!
The ageing potential is 20 years.

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.

Press Reviews

95 points - David Lawrason

Here's a very refined, lively and firm Barolo, with classic nebbiolo structure and aromatics. It pour medium ruby - still youthful. The aromas are nicely lifted yet delicate with cherry/kirsch fruit, red rose, subtle parmesan and prosciutto notes. It is medium weight yet Barolo-firm with good acid and gritty tannin. Some herb and scrub on the finish. The length is excellent. Best 2024 to 2030, but also worth opening now with aeration. Tasted May 2021

This is a beautiful, ripe Barolo with a solid center palate of ripe fruit and firm tannins. It’s full-bodied and powerful. The intense tannins are focused and integrated, blending into the wine. Vibrant finish. Real deal. Needs two or three years to soften.

Another highly seasoned nebbiolo of rather dark red fruit and barrel piques that create spikes and valleys in the wine. Hangs on with enough energy to see the acidity match the fruit stride for stride. There's a sense of structure to see this '16 last for a decade strong and long. Drinking window will open shortly so the temptation will be to imbibe often and early, thereby fertilizing the narcotic poppy of drinking pleasure. Drink 2022-2030. Tasted January 2020.
