“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. “ – Description from JelaDragoljevic

  • Brovia is no longer the undiscovered gem. That's also a tiny cru, and I think they have, for practical purposes, a monopole.  No one else has any or in any case enough to bottle it separately.  I'll PM you with my request.  Whew. I've spent that much on only a handful of wines over the years (unless it was a resto markup) but it is one of a kind... Read More
