    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.

    Conca can be described as one of the smallest MGA crus in La Morra. It almost entirely serves as Revello’s home block. The name ‘Conca’ is derived from its concave shape, which has for effect to trap heat and coddle the vines, conferring the wines a bolder structure and fleshiness than those made from vines situated higher up. This vineyard is claimed by 5 producers, Revello being not only the largest landholder, but also the most committed to preserving its natural ecosystem. The vines were planted in 1954 on calcareous and clayey soil. The 0.7-hectare vineyard faces south-east at 250 meters above sea level.

    The grapes were hand harvested and transferred into horizontal roto-fermenters where they remained for 6 to 8 days on skins. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks for 10 to 15 days. Malolactic conversion happened in barriques. It was aged in used French barriques 60% and new 40% for 24 months.

    One of the smallest vineyard extensions in all of Barolo, Conca is the tiny plot in front of the Revello estate. Dripping with personality, Conca’s geography lends itself towards structured wines that are atypical to La Morra, with characters of chocolate, spice, tar and smoke and a serious tannin profile.
