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.
Brea Ca’ Mia is truly a ‘Grand Cru’ vineyard site, sitting at a perfect southeast exposure at 350 meters over sea level. The vineyard was planted in 1955 and the resulting wine is stunning. Layers of nuance unfold here, with notes of black cherry, plum, spice, lavender, mint, licorice, sage, black pepper and leather. Beautiful aromatics and and tons of depth, with refined tannins that add to the wine’s balance. Powerful, lengthy finish.
