About Azienda Agricola Brovia

Few producers in Piedmont have experienced such a meteoric rise in prestige in recent years as Brovia, described by Monica Larner (Wine Advocate) as “one of the brightest stars of Castiglione Falletto”. That is lavish praise indeed given this region is home to both Paolo Scavino and Roagna, but Brovia wears it well, making wine the old fashioned way whilst crafting Barolos that are effortlessly balanced, ethereal and long-lived.

 

A family firm run by Elena Brovia, in tandem with her Catalan husband Alex Sanchez, the wines are fermented naturally in concrete tanks before ageing takes place in large, old oak vessels resulting in old-school Barolo as it is meant to be.

 

Their wines are muscular, intense and long-lived, but unlike the hard-edged Barolo of days gone by, they are ineffably elegant and charming. Quite simply, these are absolute must-haves for lovers of the long-cherished classic style of wines from the likes of Rinaldi, Bartolo Mascarello, Roagna and Canonica – when only “proper” Barolo will do, look no further than Brovia.

Brovia Barbera d'Alba Ciabot del Fi 2019 (6x75cl) Named for a small vineyard hut (compare with the French Cabotte) by a fig tree in Brovia's vineyards, this Barbera is all about terroir, and some might even say it is more evidently Castiglione than Barbera. It is refined, structured and extremely long-lived, but never loses focus with a classic aromatic profile and generous texture.

Brovia Barolo 150 Anniversario Riserva 2005 (1x150cl)

Antonio Galloni - Vinous (95)

The 2005 Barolo Riserva 150 Anniversario Rocche-Villero, bottled only in magnum to celebrate the estate's 150th anniversary, has blossomed into a gorgeous wine. Ample, generous and inviting, the 2005 brings together the aromatics and sensuality of Rocche with the darker fruit and structural weight of Villero, a compelling combination, to say the least. The creamy, beautifully layered finish only adds to the wine's considerable appeal. Readers who own the 2005 are in for a real treat.

Brovia Barolo 2013 (6x75cl)

Wine Enthusiast (94)

Given the poise and complexity, it's hard to believe this is the firm's entry-level Barolo. It opens with alluring aromas of wild berry, forest floor, new leather, menthol and purple flower while the full-bodied palate delivers crushed raspberry, morello cherry, mint and star anise. Firm refined tannins and bright acidity give it a structured finesse as well as balance.

Brovia Barolo 2017 (6x75cl) Despite the humble appellation of this wine, the blended Barolo from Brovia is anything but humble in pedigree. Largely made up of the young vines - still all about 25 years old - in their iconic Brea Vigna vineyard, there is a large drop of fruit from the Rocche di Castiglione and Villero vineyards as well as older vines from across the estate. Perhaps even better than the 94+ point 2015 this is a blended Barolo for lovers of classic, old-school Nebbiolo that refuses to compromise.

Brovia Barolo Garblet Sue 2012 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (90)

This wine is known for its delicate floral tones and elegant minerality. The 2012 Barolo Garblèt Sue' delivers those characteristics, but in a subtler manner. This is a bright and buoyant red wine with pretty floral and fruit tones that are enhanced by dusty notes of crushed granite and polished river stone. You get extra spice and a touch of sweet cinnamon on the finish.

Wine Advocate (94)

Showing some immediate softness, the 2015 Barolo Garblèt Sue' is beautifully approachable and generously accommodating, even at this early stage in the wine's drinking window. Bring it out with a selection of goat cheeses. It's interesting to note that, at 40 years old, the vines of this cru in Castiglione Falletto actually rank as some of the youngest held by the Brovia estate, founded in 1863, before the unification of Italy.

Wine Advocate (92)

The 2011 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione shows beautiful integration and clarity of aromas. Wild berry and forest floor is followed by spice, leather and a strong mineral characteristic with crushed oyster shell and marine layers at the back. The wine undergoes fermentation in cement vats and is later transferred to large oak casks for aging. The vintage heat has contributed to a soft and more approachable personality overall. But the wine is built to last nonetheless.

Brovia Barolo Rocche 2015 (6x75cl)

Vinous (94)

Brovia's flagship 2015 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione is a decidedly full-bodied wine. The richness of this warm vintage comes through loud and clear in an ample, resonant Barolo endowed with serious textural depth. Lifted floral and spice notes add an attractive upper register as the 2015 starts to open up in the glass. Even so, the Rocche stands out for its volume and sheer size, both of which are unusual for this Castiglione Falletto site, where the wines tend to be more lithe. The Rocche appears to be the Barolo most shaped by the growing season in this range.

Brovia Barolo Villero 2011 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (93+)

The 2011 Barolo Villero exhibits a full body and thick concentration. Ultimately, this is one of my favorite wines from Brovia in this vintage. I love the muscle and heft that the wine shows, and the fact it delivers that power with the utmost elegance. Nothing is heavy or overdone here. You really get a sense of the quality of fruit achieved in the Villero vineyard. The wine shows integrated tannins and impeccable dark fruit balance.

Wine Advocate (91)

One of Brovia's most robust and structured Barolos, I was a bit distracted by the oak in the 2012 Barolo Villero. Needless to say, the wine will integrate and find its balance as it matures and evolves in the bottle. Thick lines and dark fruit aromas of cherry and blackberry are backed by allspice and clove with dark tar or asphalt.

Wine Advocate (94)

The 2015 Barolo Villero offers richness and darkness with fruit from Castiglione Falletto, and it's one of the more intense wines I tasted within this selection. The Villero is a balanced and polished Barolo that opens to nicely integrated fruit and spice tones, expertly interwoven and united. The wine has a beautiful entry to the palate. Indeed, this pretty wine presented a united front, with seamless and graceful integration.
