About this wine
This is one of three single-vineyard wines in the Fratelli Revello portfolio. With fruit from La Morra, the Fratelli Revello 2016 Barolo Gattera shows good volume and ample succulence; however, the drinking style remains accessible and immediate. Gattera reveals soft, silky tannins, and the bouquet opens to a pretty mixture of berry fruits, wild cherry and rose. On the back end, you get spice, tar and smoke. Some St. Louis-style ribs would do nicely here.
The 2016 Barolo Gattera is powerful and ample in the glass, with good depth and plenty of persistence. The Gattera needs time to fully come together after its bottling, but it has good structure and plenty of personality. Iron, smoke, licorice, leather, scorched earth and dark fruit give the Gattera a decidedly dark feel.
