ABOUT THE WINE
The Reva winery, established in Monforte d'Alba in 1867, embarked on a modern journey in 2013 under the ownership of Czech Republic native Miroslav Lekes. He enlisted Gianluca Colombo as oenologist and devotedly pursued the perfection of the wines crafted on the intimate 7.5-hectare estate, with an emphasis on sustainability. The current team, comprising young and professional winemakers, cherishes both tradition and innovation, utilizing state-of-the-art technology to preserve the pristine quality of the harvested fruit. Their goal is to employ cutting-edge techniques that accentuate the vineyard's efforts and the expressiveness of the diverse wines and their varietal traits. While uncertified, 100% organic vineyard practices are employed, and the grapes for this Barolo are handpicked from meticulously chosen vineyards in Monforte d'Alba, Novello, Serralunga d'Alba, and Grizane Cavour. After spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel tanks for 30-35 days, this Barolo matures in oak barrels for an additional 24 months.
This exquisite Nebbiolo, adorned in a captivating garnet hue, is a sublime embodiment of this distinguished grape. The nose presents an enchanting interplay of verdant aromas, black cherry, velvety vanilla, delicate dog rose, and a whisper of tobacco. A full-bodied yet refined red, it offers a tantalizing blend of red berry fruit, morello cherry, clove, and peppery undertones. This delightful fusion of intensity and finesse is enveloped in soft, embracing tannins.
Indulge in a harmonious culinary experience by pairing this exceptional wine with an opulent osso buco, a lavish truffle-infused risotto, or a refined duck confit, each dish impeccably complementing the wine's intricate nuances.
The Réva Estate is something to behold, with scenic pools and terraces, it is more than just a winery, but a destination to visit and stay in the picturesque wine heaven that is Piemonte.
