A past Wine Access story about 2013 Carlo Revello & Figli Barolo R.G.

2013 was potentially the greatest vintage of recent memory in Piedmont.

95-Point Barolo From Three Top Crus

This 2013 Carlo Revello & Figli Barolo R.G., from Carlo and his eldest son Erik, is an absolute stunner, capturing 95 points from James Suckling, who called it “impressive” with “full body, fine and silky tannins.” As Piedmont collectors know, 2013 was potentially the greatest vintage of recent memory, equaling or bettering 2008 and 2010. “If you love age-worthy Nebbiolo, then stock your cellar with 2013 Barolo,” advised Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. At $49.99 per bottle, with a 95-point score and only 333 cases produced, don’t wait on this.

Since the release of their first Barolo in 1993, brothers Enzo and Carlo Revello have overseen a reign of dominance in the La Morra commune under their Fratelli Revello label. “Revello embodies the finest values of Piedmont’s artisan culture,” raved Antonio Galloni, whose Vinous has lavished more than 40 92-95 point scores on the winery. James Suckling was even more generous, with an incredible 44 92-96 point reviews for Revello. Last year, Enzo and Carlo split up to ensure that their fourth-generation winemaking sons could lead the respective fraternal estates.

For his debut vintage in the States, Carlo pulled out all the stops, sourcing fruit from the very best blocks (3.7 acres total) of warm, calcareous Cru vineyards: Conca, Rocche dell’Annunziata, and Giachini. (The wine’s title, R.G., comes from the first initials of the latter two.) These are names familiar to every Barolo connoisseur, some of the most prized plots in the region. Historian and winemaker Renato Ratti has called Rocche dell’Annunziata a “Grand Cru of Barolo” while Galloni has declared it “one of the great sites in Piedmont.” The nearby, gently sloping Giachini is also a longtime favorite of Galloni’s: “one of La Morra’s top sites.”

In the magical 2013 growing season, excellent natural sugars combined with sturdy, mature tannins to provide for some of the most voluptuous, magnificently structured Barolos in decades. If you want know what it tastes like when La Morra behaves like Vosne-Romanée or Gevrey, hit buy now.
