The Brovia family have been growing nebbiolo since 1863. The family organically farms some of the greatest vineyards in the heart of the Barolo area: the “grand cru” sites of Rocche, Villero and Garblèt Sue’ in Castiglione Falletto and Brea “Ca’ Mia” in Serralunga d’Alba.
Brovia Barolo DOCG 2013
Sourced from 3 sites within Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga d’Alba (planted in 1971, 1974 and 1993). The soils are clay and limestone at an altitude of 250-350m. The fruit is hand-picked and ferments at a moderate temperature for 15-20 days before ageing in large Slovenian oak for over 2 years.
“Given the poise and complexity, it’s hard to believe this is the firm’s entry-level Barolo. It opens with alluring aromas of wild berry, forest floor, new leather, menthol and purple flower while the full-bodied palate delivers crushed raspberry, morello cherry, mint and star anise. Firm refined tannins and bright acidity give it a structured finesse as well as balance.” – 94 Points Kerin O’Keefe, Wine Enthusiast
