Type: Red Wine
The Brovia family winery was founded in 1863 by Giacinto Brovia, and from the beginning, the importance of terroir has been the priority of their viticultural style. Over the generations, an uncompromising attitude towards vineyard selection has allowed the family to extend their landholding into arguably the greatest of Barolo’s vineyard crus, including Rocche, Villero and Garblèt Sue’ in Castiglione Falletto and Ca’Mia and Brea in Serralunga d’Alba. Grapes are organically farmed, lightly crushed, and classically vinified. The wines are fermented at a cool temperature. The Barolos are aged in large French and Slavonian barrels, then bottled without filtration.
This Barolo is characteristically rustic, structured and delicious, with aromas of ripe forest berries, truffle and balsamic vinegar. With body and finesse, the savory, focused palate delivers notes of cherry, raspberry and baking spice, before an almost saline finish. Tightly knit, fine-grained tannins are balanced by fresh acidity and minerality.
