Brovia Barolo Garblèt Sué 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very ripe cherry fruits in alcohol on the nose are framed by sandlewood, a hint of nutmeg, some meaty nuances and late arriving jammy strawberry notes. There’s an initial opulence to this wine, though the early arriving acids lend brightness to the plump, slightly jammy cherry fruit. This is a little spicy on the palate with a touch of minerality, and lush tannins, really beautiful in an immediately approachable style that is packed with fruit. Slightly less evolved and more tannic than the Villero, this is very typical of the vintage. 92pts

“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
