The Réva winery in Monforte d'Alba dates back to 1867, but its modern era began in 2013, under the ownership of Miroslav Lekes from the Czech Republic. He appointed Gianluca Colombo as oenologist and has worked tirelessly to perfect the wines produced on the small 7.5-hectare estate, while also seeking to improve sustainability. Vineyard practice is 100% organic.

One of the cherished 'crus' of Barolo, Ravera gives Nebbiolo that's staggeringly complex, and powerful, but balanced with velvety elegance. Scents are earthy, spicy and floral. Mainly showing as tar, crushed rose petals and allspice. Red and black fruits, particularly cherries are brilliantly pure and luscious. The sweet Turkish tobacco aromas at the end are a nice touch. Acidity is lively on the palate, finishing full-bodied and persistent, with velvety, dense tannins.

Try with fresh egg pasta topped with shaved white Piemontese truffles or hearty rabbit ragu risotto.

Best cellared for a few more years, this will age superbly in the magnum format, and be drinking well, and still steadily improving, from 2021 onwards. From the Ravera cru vineyard.
