Reviews for 2005 Fratelli Revello Barolo Vigna Giachini

WS 94
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, July 2009
Offers flowers and dried mushroom on the nose with hints of tar. Full-bodied with chewy silky tannins and a vanilla berry and cherry aftertaste. Superb. Best after 2011. 350 cases made. - JS

Here the profile tends towards a darker expression than that found in the Gattera. The wine remains compelling for its textural richness rather than detail while the characteristic floral notes that are one the hallmarks of this site reappear on the finish framing the wine nicely. The terrain at Giachini contains a larger percentage of sand than some of the other vineyards in La Morra and yields perfumed wines that at times resemble those from Rocche dell'Annunziata. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025. --- Antonio Galloni

Good deep red. Less primary and fruity on the nose than the Gattera showing coffee mocha and chocolatey oak. Sweet on entry then more closed in the middle with youthfully subdued flavors of plum and chocolate; I don't yet... Good deep red. Less primary and fruity on the nose than the Gattera showing coffee mocha and chocolatey oak. Sweet on entry then more closed in the middle with youthfully subdued flavors of plum and chocolate; I don't yet find the floral quality typical of this bottling. Finishes with broad building tannins but also very good breadth and sweetness.
