    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.

    Due to Gattera’s substantial surface area (over 30 hectares), its altitude (240-250 meters) and exposure vary significantly. Revello’s portion of Gattera is at its western-most part, where the vineyard faces southeast, not too far from the homestead and Conca vineyard. This is the coolest site with two distinct parts, one facing southeast, the other, historically known as Turna Langa, facing south. This is a rather feminine rendition of Barolo offering balance, elegance, and delicate spice. The vines were planted between 1960 and 1995 on calcareous and clayey soil. The single hectare vineyard faces south-east at 250 meters above sea level, and south-west at 240 meters above sea level.

    The grapes were hand harvested and transferred into horizontal roto-fermenters where they remained for 7 to 8 days on skins. It was fermented in stainless steel tanks for 10 to 15 days. Malolactic conversion also happened in stainless steel. It was aged in large Slavonian oak barrels for 24 months.

    A beautiful and iconic vineyard in La Morra, Gattera is known as much for its iconic Lebanese Cedar that dominates the hillside as it is for producing wines of litheness and elegance. Revello’s Gattera displays wonderful balance every vintage, and walks the line between fruitiness and spice with sweet tannins and fresh acid.
