From The Importer
The Revello family encapsulate all that is brilliant about the newer generation of Barolo grower/producers.
They don't sit firmly in either the 'modernist' or 'traditionalist' vein, instead treading the line to make what, in their eyes, is a pure expression of both the Nebbiolo grape and the terroir of La Morra. Like any of the great wines in the world, their belief is that the best wines always rely on the work in the vineyard; a true grower's mentality.
Gattera exists as probably La Morra's most iconic single vineyard thanks to the enormous ancient cedar tree at the very crest. Sitting towards the top of the La Morra hill, it's Revello's coolest (temperature) Nebbiolo vineyard and usually produces the estate's most elegant wines.
It remains the only Barolo from Revello treated solely to large-format Slavonian oak, intended to showcase the elegance and always truffled nuances of this site.
