BACK STORY: FROM MY SUPPLIER I HAVE DONE BUSINESS WITH FOR YEARS, FROM HIS PERSONAL CELLAR NEVER SEEING LITE OF DAY!!..I HAVE JUST TASTED AND BOUGHT REMAINING INVENTORY!!..PRISTINE AGED PRODUCT FOR PENNIES!!

CRU , SINGLE VINEYARD BAROLO WITH 19 YEARS OF BOTTLE AGE, A STEAL!...DRINKS LIKE NOBODY'S BUSINESS!!

"A wonderful wine, with loads of ripe fruit, toasted oak and chocolate character. Full-bodied, with loads of velvety tannins. This is a very well made, beautiful young wine. Better than the 2000. Revello is the rising star of the region. Best after 2008. 375 cases made. -JS" (WS)

"The 2001 Barolo Giachini is round, sweet and polished. This isn’t the most complex Barolo at Revello but the suave tannins and sexy personality makes it a great choice for drinking over the next few years. Bright, floral notes ring out on the impeccable finish. Some very slight elements of fragility lead me to believe the readers shouldn’t wait too long here. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018. " (WA)

Winery Notes:
“Revello embodies the finest values of Piedmont’s artisan culture.” – Antonio Galloni

Seeming to appear out of nowhere about 10 years ago, brothers Enzo and Carlo Revello took over their father’s nine-hectare estate and almost immediately became one of the hottest estates in La Morra. The brothers are also very close to Elio Altare, who, along with Beppe Caviola, worked closely with them as they left their careers to focus full time on winemaking. In 2016, the brothers decided it was time to pass the reigns to the new generation, with Enzo retaining the Fratelli Revello label and part ownership of each of the Revello crus.

Now under the leadership of Enzo’s son, Simone, and daughter, Elena, winemaking and vineyard care continues with the same spirit and approach that Fratelli Revello has always embodied. Along with their Barolo DOCG, first released in 1993, the family has five cru bottlings: “Giachini”, “Rocche dell’Annunziata”, the rare “Conca” and “Gattera,” all released in 1999, as well as “Cerretta,” a vineyard site that comes to Simone and Elena by way of their mother, first released in 2012.

Vineyard Management: Sulfur and copper-based products are mainly used. No insecticides are used. Only organic fertilizers (manure) are used (every 3-4 years). Natural cover crops (grass cover) are left between the rows of vines. The grass is mowed and in autumn the soil is tilled (every other year). Very low doses of SO2 are used in in the wines.
