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.
