The Estate
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.

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 dell'Annunziata", rare "Conca" and the "Gattera," first released in 1999.

Revello Barbera, a great alternative

"You know those nights when you want a hearty glass of red wine to go with an inexpensive grilled steak but you don't have any Barolo in the cupboard? Well just open a bottle of Revello Barbera when you fire up the grill. It's a perfect glass of wine for quite a bit less than twenty bucks. It's unctuous, heavy with red fruits, and gets better with a little air. I will be buying this one again."

I wonder if my bottle was ok or not?

"This gets good reviews but my bottle had a sort of sharp, raisiney sherry taste to it. After an hour it settled down but was still sharp and astringent. Maybe I just have no idea of what a nice Barbera should taste like but my bottle was not very good. Perhaps try before buying a case."
