The “king of wines and wine of kings” Barolo, and his youngest relative, Barbaresco, should be mandatory tasting experiences within a wider culture of good drinking, not only for their stellar quality, but for their unique style. Unlike other Italian masterpieces that can be accompanied with more international grapes and flavors, these great classics are best expressed with their territorial typicality (100% Nebbiolo), following the rigorous Piemontese standards. Unlike many Barolo and Barbaresco on the market, which require considerable aging in order to express themselves in the best way and be more appreciated, the philosophy of Reversanti is to make each vintage directly accessible for release.
Piedmont has long been known for its red wines and unique terrains. The complexity of nuances connected to location, soil type and exposure determined an ancient tradition of crus that distinguishes Piedmont from all other Italian regions. Reversanti began bottling their wines with the philosophy to showcase these different terroirs.
