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 Lazzarito cru is located in Serralunga d'Alba. Made entirely from Nebbiolo (clone Lampia and Michet), the grapes ferment spontaneously in truncated cone-shaped Austrian oak vats for 40 days. It ages for 36 months in large Austrian oak barrels, followed by further aging in bottle for 24 months.

This Riserva presents itself with a bright red colour showing garnet highlights. The bouquet becomes intriguing, rich in fruity aromas of cherry, blackberry, plum, and hints of balsamic mint. On the palate it shows the power of this renowned cru, with an important but balanced structure, robust but with a harmonious tannic texture. The finish is long. Only 2,000 bottles.

Truffles pair naturally with Barolo. Enjoy it with tagliolini with taleggio cheese and black truffles.

The single vineyard cru Lazazarito is added in 2016 and it is Daniele Gaia’s first harvest at Réva. Drive the best car and drive it right away. “This is the best wine Réva has never made, “ says Gaia with great irony and humility. Tasted from low temperatures (22-24 degrees) in tank there was fear of Lazzrito’s tannins. Here above Sewrralunga a long strip on the top of the eastern side of the hill gives a marl-calcaire meets sandy soikl and so the best of both structural worlds; freshness (also from high pH) and grip. Yes it’s silly young and impressionable but already handsome, unadorned and fruit so crunchy, yet also sapid, a pinch salty and the impression of acidity is a freshness with thanks to that elevated pH. A sample but already in bottle and will be released in two years. Drink 2024-2036. Tasted January 2020.

This is quite a potent Barolo riserva, offering plenty of ripe berries and lightly polished oak on the nose. Full-bodied with lightly grainy, largely oak tannins and a long finish. Undoubtedly well made and intact and will appeal to those who like their nebbiolo well oaked. Drink or hold.
