The classic Carlo Revello & Figli 2016 Barolo represents a blend of fruit from La Morra (the part that adds fragrant intensity to the bouquet) and Serralunga d'Alba, the part that adds structure and power. You get aromas of crushed cherries and dried violets that I would associate with La Morra, but I also pick up on the ferrous or earthy aromas that I associate with Serralunga d'Alba. This vintage shows power, with tannins folded into the rich structure of the wine.

The 2016 Barolo is a gorgeous entry-level wine that shows just how appealing this vintage is, even among straight Barolos. Bright red cherry and floral notes grace this vibrant, wonderfully nuanced Barolo. The 2016 is flat-out delicious and will be impossible to resist, even upon release. The purity of the fruit here is just striking.

Aromas of smoke, bark, ash and ripe berries follow through to a full body with chewy tannins and an underlying focus of fruit, berry and earth. It’s tight, tannic and very long. Give it three or four years to come together.

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.
