Fact Sheet

Location: Castiglione Falletto, Barolo, La Morra, & Within the Barbaresco commune

Piedmont has long been known for its red wines and unique terrains. In fact it is not uncommon for the soil to vary from hillside to hillside which often causes fierce competition among wineries for prime vineyard locations to grow their vines. 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.

Piedmontese wines have been labeled according to terroir and even according to vineyards for centuries. Names like Bussia, Cannubi and Brunate have graced Barolo bottles as far back as the 1700s, and villages such as La Morra, Barolo, Serralunga d’Alba, Monforte d’Alba and Castiglione Falletto have impressed the respective marks on Barolo styles for just as long, while Barbaresco, Treiso and Neive have colored the flavors and aromas of Barbaresco wines. Reversanti began bottling their wines with the philosophy to showcase these different terroirs.

Reversanti Barolo is orchestrated as a blend of three distinct hillsides or villages Castiglione Falletto, Barolo and the village of La Morra. The Barolo is almost an equal blend from these unique soils. Barolo is known as re dei vini e vino dei re, or "king of wines and wine of kings." Its noble roots have grown for some 150 years in a handful of villages, in the heart of Piedmont. Within this tiny appellation is a trinity of terroirs, each of which enhances a particular aspect of Barolo; structure, elegance and bouquet.

In contrast the Barbaresco is from a single-vineyard within the Barbaresco Commune. All of the vines are south facing.
