Brovia Barolo Rocche 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Seeds, smoke, and huge soil notes come together on the tight, refined nose which gains aromas of tobacco, leather, nettles, herbs, and slow to emerge small berry plum fruits and rocky minerality on the nose. Opening with big spice notes on the palate, this shows such purity and superb balance in the mouth. It’s all about the balance today and the big aromatic follow through because on the palate this is slow to open, showing dark, wild raspberry fruit and macerated herbs in a strict way that is dominated by limestone. This is almost supple in its closedness, but it has absolutely huge power and tannins on the finish, offering classic, cut and vibrancy to die for on the long, aromatic finish. A tough wine but one that is elegant and refined at its core. 95pts

“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
