Reviews for 2006 Fratelli Revello Barolo Vigna Giachini

Wow. This is fabulous for the vintage. There is so much going on with sliced plums flowers and minerals. Full and super well-integrated on the palate. Love the tannins and fruity here. All in harmony. Wait until after 2013.

Revello's 2006 Barolo Giachini emerges from the glass with dark wild cherries menthol spices violets roses and minerals. This is a decidedly austere almost classic Barolo from Revello where the structural components seem to dominate over the fruit in the wine's balance. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. --- Antonio Galloni

Oak spice aromas are followed by cherry notes and a hint of licorice in this elegant red which has fine length. Its tannins are well-integrated and this should develop in the near term. Best from 2012 through 2024. -BS

Deep red-ruby color. More chocolate and coffee from the oak to go with aromas of black fruits and licorice. Then densely packed but a bit clenched with the 50% new barrique element quite apparent today. Intriguing hint of... Deep red-ruby color. More chocolate and coffee from the oak to go with aromas of black fruits and licorice. Then densely packed but a bit clenched with the 50% new barrique element quite apparent today. Intriguing hint of marzipan. Less obviously sweet than the Gattera and finishing with a stronger impression of oak tannins. There was a bit of hail in this vineyard in 2006.
