Brovia Barolo Brea Ca'Mia 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

With the new labelling laws implemented with the 2010 vintage the wine formerly known simply as Ca’Mia will now also include the name of the Brea cru on the label. Dark, earthy and spicy on the reticent and medicinal nose which picks up aromas of dried plums, dark cherry, dandelion greens, leather, asphalt, and rose petals with air. Big and powerful in the mouth, the palate truly mirrors the nose here with flavors of earthy, dark burnished fruit, bit of dried plum, and almost a hint of blue fruit. Very lively on the palate, transparent and alive in the mouth with fine acids, medicinal fruit, and round balls of powerful lending this a seamless feel. This is going to be a stunningly complex and long wine with hints of dried fruit and espresso foam already emerging on the long finish which ends with real lift. On the palate this feels so gothic, all detail and symmetrically while be lacey and tall. 94pts

“In the wonderful hills of Barolo wine, where the landscape begins to take on a different, more animated guise, there is a family that has always been associated with wine: the BROVIAs. The Winery had been set up as far back as 1863 and is settled in Castiglione Falletto. Paying always attention to the importance of the “terroir”, with time and an uncompromising attitude to the selection of the finest vineyards in Langa, the family has been able to acquire great vineyards in the Barolo growing area: Rocche, Villero and Garblèt Sue’ in Castiglione Falletto and Ca’Mia and Brea in Serralunga d’Alba. Thus, the philosophy of the Winery is to propose great personality Barolos (as with the other wines produced), all made in the same way, but with very specific and clean characteristics, always different among them; Barolos that faithfully reflect the richness of our great Langa vineyards. “ Read less
