Brovia Barolo Rocche Dei Brovia Premier 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A tight nose with fine herbal, mineral and black spice notes and a touch of musty earth sits cool and  compact in the glass. This is intensely fruited,full of  bitter cherry fruit supported by superb ripe tannins, showing super integration, This has the slightly austere aggressive quality of Rocche, but in a particularly open style, that is nonetheless not easy to understand. The nose and long finish share emerging smoky herbal and licorice notes and a pop of wild strawberry fruit . There’s a lot going on here, with tremendous potential for the future but this is a bit hard to get a handle on today. 94pts

“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
