Enzo and Carlo Revello take over their father’s estate in 1990: their vineyards, once belonging to the local parish, boast parcels in the crus of Giachini, Rocche dell’Annunziata, Conca dell’Annunziata and Gattera.
Starting in 2016 the two brothers decided to divide the property into two estates: each one has approximately 50% of the vineyards. This decision was mainly taken in order to favour the new generation by giving it responsibility and work. Elena, the daughter of Enzo, is about to graduate in foreign languages and is now working at the estate receiving clients and organizing tastings, Simone, the son of Enzo, has attended the “Scuola Enologica” of Alba (school of oenology) and is now working actively in the family vineyards and in the cellar.
Enzo kept the original homestead and cellar and maintained the same name of the estate and the original logo on the labels.
The crus of Conca and Gattera are now part of this estate together with a small part of the Giachini cru and of the Cerretta cru (which is in Serralunga).
The complete range of Baroli of the 2013 vintage will be released with the label of Revello Fratelli. More in detail: Barolo, Barolo Conca, Barolo Gattera, Barolo Giachini, Barolo Rocche dell’Annunziata. Dolcetto d’Alba, Barbera d’Alba, Barbera d’Alba “Ciabot du Re”, Langhe Nebbiolo, Langhe Rosso L’Insieme will also be released in 2017. The estate will decide which Baroli of the 2014 and 2015 vintage to bottle.
Starting from the 2016 vintage, only the Barolo Conca, the Barolo Gattera, the Barolo Cerretta and Barolo Giachini, made from the homonymous crus now owned by the estate, will be released, together with Barbera d’Alba, Barbera d'Alba "Ciabot du Re", Langhe Nebbiolo and Langhe Rosso L’Insieme.
