The Wine
100 Nebbiolo planted in calcarous clay soils. Maceration for 4-5 days at 30-32C of temperature, fermentation in stainless steel tanks, ageing in French oak barriques (20 new) for 20-24 months. The wine is cellared in the bottle for 8 months before release.

The Estate
Seeming to appear out of nowhere about 10 years ago, brothers Enzo and Carlo Revello took over their fathers 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, has worked with them since their decision to leave their previous careers for full-time winemaking work. Enzo works mainly in the cellar and Carlo in the vineyard. Since the release of their first Barolo (1993 vintage), which was a blend of fruit from all of their vineyard holdings, the brothers have released four cru bottlings, Giachini, Rocche dellAnnunziata, rare Conca and the Gattera, first released in 1999.

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.

Linda

Excellent Value

"Most reds should be five years old before they are opened and allowed to breathe; this wine is no exception. An excellent wine (and value) from beginning to end."

Marykate .r

Ok but bland

"A little too pricey for an ok wine. Smooth but not interesting."
