A special bottling to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Brovia. A historical blend of Rocche and Villero, one that was very popular before Crus took over, that spent 5 years in botte. Bottled exclusively in magnum. Lovely sandalwood, red licorice, and dried peach aromas greet the nose followed by light grey/black spice tones, a touch of ash and dry white clay. This is silken on entry, with burnished cherry fruit that is a touch lean and mineral before gaining nice black cherry pit fruit framed by licorice notes on the mid-palate. This has a sweetness to the tannins, and lovely wild cherry fruit on the backend that leads to a long savory finish, showing rosehip and mint nuances, along with a bit of alcohol on the finale. This is old school to the max, their Monfortino to their Giacosa-esque regular crus. 93pts

This vineyard sight in the town of Castiglione Falletto yields softer Baroli. That being said, this traditional estate makes the most of the vineyard's stony soil to produce wines of structure and finesse. The fruit here is plum-like, woodsy, and earthy. The tannins are remarkably approachable at a young age.

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.

A great value in Nebbiolo for those of you who crave Barolo but are saving that bottle for the right occasion. This is drinking very well right now: berries, plums, and almonds shine through on the palate, and the finish is firm and tannic.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2005 Barolo Villero is ridiculously great. All sorts of cinnamon, cloves, menthol and other balsamic nuances take center stage. The dark fruit is marvelously radiant, open and expressive, showing superb density and richness. The tannins are of course firm for a wine of this age, but that doesn’t get in the way of what is a totally alluring Barolo of the highest level. Violets, plums and minerals ring out on the precise, refreshing finish. Hats off to Brovia for another exceptional Barolo...95." WA 12/23/10
