Intense notes of walnut shells, violets, roast meat, herb stem, sand, a touch of menthol, spicy and every so stewy wild berry fruit 3 Superb elegance in the mouth with a sweet entry and a steely midpalate showing superb balance and integration 3+ Fresh and cool flavors of mineral, licorice and wild berry are crisp and virtually ready to drink, delicious 2+ The medium length finish is tight and taut with just a hint of austerity and noteworthy transparency to the earth and tobacco tones 2+ 92pts

Classic Brovia with a restrained subtlety and great focus on the decidedly dark, tarry, anise tinged fruits. Very civilized and finely focused with good balance and drinking well though with 2 decades positive development ahead.

Fine, spiced cherry nose. Palate is tannic, full of deep red fruits, warm medicinal flavors, cedar box, and loads of spice. Good, refreshing acidity finishes with tar and clove.

Meaty with notes of leather, licorice and chocolate. Lots of tannin, but drinking ok now. Tasted at the Snooth / Chambers Street Wines Magnificent Barolo Tasting

A red wine blended from younger vines found within the four crus of the Brovia estate. This has smooth tannins on the palate, with a real woodsy/spicy character and red fruits. Always a compelling Nebbiolo from one of our favorite estates in Piedmont.

"Rocche" is one of Brovia's most impressive achievements from a 1.5 hectare pacel of forty year old vines. On the nose, the wine gives lovely red fruits: cherry, raspberry, as well as distinct floral notes. The wine is light in color but perfectly extracted and structured. A wine that is meant for the table.

Budget Nebbiolo for those of you who crave Barolo but are saving that bottle for the right occasion. Drinking very well at the moment: berries, plums, and almonds with a firm tannic finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

An extremely fine and elegant wine from one of the great vineyards of Castiglione Falletto. The colour is carnet red with light orange coloured reflections. The nose is balanced and intense with violets, strawberries, prunes, cherries, mint, woody essence, liquorice and some balsamic notes. The taste begins slowly, but it grows incrementally until coating the palate. Recommended with: This wine can combine with every dish (except sweets) going particularly well with meat dishes and dry mature cheese.
