Region Barolo DOCG

Barolo is a red Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) wine produced in the northern Italian region of Piedmont. It is made from the Nebbiolo grape and is considered one of Italy's greatest wines. Some would say it is pre-eminent. Five townships (Barolo, La Morra, Castiglione Falletto, Monforte d'Alba and Serralunga d'Alba) account for roughly 90% of Barolo production. The entire appellation consists of 11 townships, 2000ha of vineyards and 700 wineries that produced 13 million bottles in 2015, of which some 80% was exported. The other townships of Barolo are Cherasco, Diano d'Alba, Grinzane Cavour, Novello, Roddi and Verduno. Although production codes have always stipulated that vineyards must be located on hillsides, the most recent revision of the production code released in 2010 goes further, categorically excluding valley floors, humid and flat areas, areas without sufficient sunlight, and areas with full-on northern exposures. Barolo is often described as having

Barolo is often described as having the aromas of tar and roses, and the wines are noted for their ability to age. They usually take on a rust red tinge as they mature. Barolo must be aged for at least 38 months after the harvest before release, of which at least 18 months must be in wood. When subjected to aging of at least five years before release, the wine can be labeled Riserva. In the past, Barolos tended to be high in tannin, taking 10 years or more to soften and become ready for drinking. Beginning in the 1970s and 1980s, a new generation of winemakers have developed a ‘modern’ style of Barolo based on improved viticulture and grape quality, less extractive winemaking and new approaches to oak maturation. The entrenched views of both the ‘modernists’ and ‘traditionalists’ have moderated over time, with the result that today the overall quality of Barolo is undoubtedly the best it has ever been. Barolo and neighbouring Barbaresco form part of the recently created UNESCO World Heritage site, Vineyard Landscape of Piedmont: Langhe-Roero and Monferrato; testament to the stunning beauty of their viticultural landscapes.

Winery CARLO REVELLO

Carlo Revello is a second-generation Langhe winemaker working alongside his eldest son Erik. Since 2016, they have made wine under the Carlo Revello e Figli label. These are an impressive introduction to the legendary wines of Barolo, crafted with little artifice and showcasing La Morra terroir with all the grace and elegance so prized in wines from this pocket of the DOCG. Two established familial crus (including the ‘crown jewel’ Rocche dell’Annunziata cru) are now part of their estate. This is a range that sees heritage and tradition meet fresh ideas and approachability.
