About this wine
Next to the Barolo Conca, the Fratelli Revello 2016 Barolo Giachini (also from La Morra) is a bit softer still, with a loose textural fiber and accessible style. Of these various Barolos, this is the most open and ready to drink in the short and medium term. The fruit is soft and supple with wild berry and blue flower, backed by light shadings of smoke, tar and camphor ash. Giachini would serve up well with a plate of agnolotti al plin with minced meat.
The 2016 Barolo Giachini is dark, ample and inviting, with plenty of tannic grip lurking beneath that. Succulent black cherry, spice, mint, cedar and sweet pipe tobacco add layers of nuance, but overall this is a fairly straightforward, fruity Barolo to drink over the near to medium term. I would have loved to have seen more complexity, especially in this vintage and from this site, one of La Morra's top crus.
