  • TASTING NOTE: "The 2019 Barolo Ceretta, Revello's one wine from Serralunga, packs plenty of punch. The flavours are richer and darker than in the La Morra Barolos. Black cherry, incense, gravel, smoke, cured meats and licorice add to an impression of somber intensity. Give this strapping Barolo a few years to soften." 91 POINTS - ANTONIO GALLONI, VINOUS
  • ABOUT THE WINE: Fruit is sourced from the Ceretta vineyard in Serralunga d'Alba, from vines planted between 2000 and 2010. Soils are calcareous and clayey and the 0.5 hectare vineyard faces south-east. Grapes were hand harvested and transferred to horizontal roto-fermenters where they remained for 6-8 days on skins. Natural fermentation was completed in stainless steel tanks after 10-15 days. Malolactic and initial ageing in barrique (new 40%, used 60%), before a further 12 months of ageing in Slavonian oak. Unfined.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: The Annunziata village lies at the South-Easternmost point of La Morra, in the Langhe’s West. Here, the rolling hills are covered in Nebbiolo vines on the Southern slopes, their feet deep in the calcerous marl which typifies this upper section of the Barolo DOCG. Home to the most prestigious vineyards in the commune, Annunziata is well recognised as a very unique parcel of La Morra, the gateway to the ownship, and also as the apex of La Morra, Barolo township to the South and Castiglione Falletto to the East. In the best years the wines from here express not only the svelte, truffled nuances typical to La Morra, but also the balance and sweet fruited lift of its neighbours. Enzo Revello is an extremely calm, well natured man of Annunziata. He grew up here amongst the Nebbiolo vineyards and is raising his family in the same way. Though Enzo prescribes to less traditional winemaking – shorter ferments, macerations and French oak for some wines – the work in the vineyard is his legacy. Unfortunately, organic classification is almost impossible to obtain in Barolo thanks to the proximity of neighbouring vineyards; but even still, Enzo continues to maintain strict organic farming principles in each of their vineyards, especially for the cru Barolo. This is a central belief of the estate, and was the first in the district to farm using many organic practices. “I want to allow the fruit to talk to the drinker”. Specifically referring to the short, closed circuit fermentation and skin contact, “Oxygen is completely necessary for Nebbiolo, that’s why we need to use oak, but I believe that when the wine is fermenting [and macerating] it’s better to keep it away from too much air. Some others [producers] may not think it’s the best way, but it’s my way”
