Brovia Barolo Rocche Dei Brovia 2006
"Usually rather open and expressive, in 2006 the Barolo Rocche has the makings of a long-distance runner. From time to time its perfumed red fruit makes an appearance yet this remains a powerful, inward Rocche in need of significant cellaring. There is plenty of muscle in the glass, in fact the wine continues to gain weight with air. Sweet roses and tar have the last word on the magnificent, perfumed finish. The Rocche has become marvelously expressive since I tasted it last year...96." WA 12/23/10
Editorial Reviews for Brovia Barolo Rocche Dei Brovia
Seared fruit, closedish, not showing much but what’s here appears to be fresh and balanced if a touch jammy, big fruit, dry fruit, not sweet, a bit matte in the mouth, savory, woodsy tea tones, drying, a bit bitter, but long and complex finale, will improve
External Reviews for Brovia Barolo Rocche Dei Brovia
"Rocche" is one of Brovia's most impressive achievements from a 1.5 hectare pacel of forty year old vines. On the nose, the wine gives lovely red fruits: cherry, raspberry, as well as distinct floral notes. The wine is light in color but perfectly extracted and structured. A wine that is meant for the table.
