Brovia Barolo Rocche Dei Brovia 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lovely aromas of spiced red fruit, a little bramble, and a little meatiness gains a nice dusting of salty minerality over sour plum fruit with some air. This is a bit sweet on entry, with a nice slightly chewy texture featuring balanced acids and tight grained tannins acids. There’s a touch of alcohol showing, along with some dark plummy fruit on the finish which picks up tar and balsamic notes. Shows an approachability already that is surprising. 90-93pts

“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.

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
