The Reva 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. The current team are young, professional winemakers who value both tradition and innovation; using the best technology available to preserve the purity of the harvested fruit. Their aim is to use the most modern of techniques to enhance both the efforts made in the vineyard as well as the expressiveness of the different wines and their varietal characteristics. Vineyard practice is 100% organic - albeit uncertified - and the grapes for this Barolo come from carefully selected vineyards in Monforte d'Alba, Novello, Serralunga d'Alba and Grizane Cavour.  Following spontaneous fermentation (in contact with the skins) in stainless steel tanks for 30-35 days this Barolo is further aged in oak barrels for 24 months.

Garnet red, this Nebbiolo is a great expression of this noble grape. On the nose herbaceous aromas meld beautifully with that of black cherry, vanilla, dog rose and subtle hints of tobacco. A full-bodied yet elegant red with flavours of red berried fruit, morello cherry, clove and peppery notes it combines depth and succulence with a surprising delicacy all wrapped within soft, enveloping tannins.

It pairs very well with beef, aged cheese and charcuterie.
