Great care for the vineyard, respect for the characteristics of each vine, the use of modern technology and the choice of traditional winemaking techniques – these are the expressions of Réva’s identity, which has among its primary objectives the valorisation of the varieties typical of the territory: Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo.
Every stage of the production is managed with great professionalism by Reva’s staff, first of all in the vineyard, where the grapes are selected in three different moments (when thinning the vine, at harvest and in the winery). We follow up with long macerations, low-temperature fermentation, the use of indigenous yeasts and gentle ageing in wooden casks.
