2004 Barolo Vigna Gattera, Fratelli Revello
I recently drank the 2004 Vigna Conca from the Revello brothers with the 2012 Conca and Gattera from Carlo Revello on the table (notes soon to be posted) so I thought it would be a good time to open the 04 Gattera for comparison.
Glad I did, for this is drinking beautifully right now, with an open, mature nose with notes of forest floor, muscovado sugared dusted ripe cherries, sun warm asphalt, old leather and fried herbs. Very fine.
The taste is forward and velvety with notes of dried cherries, forest floor, raspberry licorice and earth. Very, very good. Very long with a fine warmth. Bought at the estate in 2008.
