The particular composition of the ground confers on thewine a great balance in the scent and in the structure. The colour is intense red. The smell is heterogeneous, with a clean scent of dry and sweet fruit and floral aromas.The wine is full bodied with a solid acidity that gives it more longevity suitable to stand the test of time.
FRATELLI BROVIA WINERY 2012 BROVIA FRATELLI BAROLO
"The 2011 Barolo is sumptuous and expressive, with all of the immediacy that is so typical of the year. Dark red cherry, plums, hard candy, spice and tobacco are all woven into a layered finish graced with soft contours and fabulous overall balance for a straight Barolo. As Brovia fans know, the straight Barolo is 70% young-vine fruit from Brea (above 20 years of age), plus the wine that is left over when the single-vineyard Barolos go into cask." Antonio Galloni Vinous Media 90-92 points (2011 vintage) Drink 2016-32
|This wine is suitable for tasty and elaborate meat dishes and for dry mature cheeses.
|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 Garblet 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.
