Brovia Barolo Rocche 1979

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

At decanting: Absurd amount of dregs, evolved, mineral, soil, dung, and leather on the nose with lurking black cherry and rose petals. Shy on the nose, if a bit on the evolved and savory side of things. In the mouth this is, rich and intense with some prosciutto fat notes and flashes of minerality early on the palate followed by fresh, lean, and focused red cherry and strawberry fruit. Perhaps a bit on the simple side, and a touch short, but still this is delicious. 87pts

“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
