The Revello family’s history began in the first post-war period, when they became tenants of a farmhouse in the parish of San Martino di La Morra. In the 1960s, they began to replant vineyards, which later produced the first bottle of Barolo by Giovanni Revello & Figli. This marked a period of expansion for Revello with their acquisition of the Gattera and Conca sites. In the 1990s, brothers Carlo and Lorenzo (Enzo) Revello decided to divide the company to facilitate the inception of their respective children. Enzo Revello later established the Fratelli Revello winery in Annunziata, where he and his children Simone and Elena now make wines together.

Since releasing their first Fratelli Revello Barolo in 1993, a blend of fruit from all their vineyards, four single cru-inspired wines appeared and defined Revello’s identity as a brand capable of producing single-site wine of inimitable quality. Today, the Fratelli Revello wines benefit from the utmost level of care and selection process in the vineyards. The resulting organic wines display an undeniable approachability and fruit generosity unspoiled thanks to a gentle touch in the cellar.

With an iconic combination of flavours, aromas, and texture, the Langhe Nebbiolo is so familiar. It emphasises generosity of fruit and tannin, and an originality akin to a breath of fresh air. The fruit comes from a variety of vineyards located in Annunziata (0.9 hectares). The vines were planted in 1996 on calcareous and clayey soil, facing south-east at 230 meters above sea level, and south-west at 250 meters above sea level. The grapes were hand harvested and transferred into horizontal roto-fermenters where they remained for 5 to 6 days on skins. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks for 10 to 15 days. Malolactic conversion also happened in stainless steel. It was aged in used French oak barriques for 12 to 14 months before bottling in July.

Vineyards for the Langhe Nebbiolo are largely the same as those for the Barolo Classico, with some extra fruit from higher altitude vineyards in the north. This is very much a Revello wine, glistening with red fruits and sweet spices and a fresh, cleansing acidity.
