2015 Brovia Barolo

Barolo, Italy

A beautiful Barolo from the 2015 vintage in the classic style of this producer.




About The Wine

From a family that has eschewed the pull of modernisation comes this stunning value wine for Barolo, and a perfect encapsulation of the Brovia house style.

60% from a portion of their holdings in Brea and 40% from the younger vines of their three crus in Castiglione Falletto. There is both a spicy, boisterous generosity and a mineral thrust in this wine, offering excellent concentration but it is relatively accessible at this early stage.

While there is tannin aplenty in this wine, there is perhaps less so than many of its contemporaries - it's a rarity for a Barolo to offer such an early ready-to-drink window.

About Brovia

The Brovia family’s winemaking history dates back to 1863, with an enviable collection of vineyards in some of the zone’s greatest crus (Rocche di Castiglione, Villero, and Garblet Sué), as well as a sizeable holding in the Cru Brea in Serralunga d’Alba.

Brovia’s work in the vines and in the cellar embody a truly traditional sensibility, one executed with sensitivity and precision. Their wines have always displayed an uncanny balance between ruggedness and grace. Farming their vines with no chemical inputs, they hand-harvested, and carefully sorted their grapes, with indigenous fermentation in large cement tanks.

While Barolo’s style pendulum continues to swing away from the excesses of a few decades back, it is a true reward to work with an estate who never succumbed to modern technology’s seduction.

From The Producer

The hand-harvested fruit ferments spontaneously in large cement tanks, with an appropriately lengthy three-to-four-week period of maceration.

Aging takes place in large foudre, ladder-requiring old Slavonian casks, and bottling is done without fining or filtration.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Mainly from Serralunga (Brea), with the remainder from Castiglione Falletto. Red cherry and red berries, some peel, mint and new leather. It’s fleshy but balanced, light drag of ripe tannin, pleasing mouth-perfume and brightness, and a long and ripe finish. Classic styling, and very good it is too. A pleasure to drink." - Gary Walsh (Winefront)

Robert Parker

"Brovia is one of the brightest stars of Castiglione Falletto, the comunne at the heart of the appellation that benefits from a complicated mix of soil types from different geological periods that intersect in and around this village. The 2015 Barolo is wine of character and brawn with dark fruit aromas followed by savory tobacco, spice and a very distinctive note of rusty nail or ferrous earth. The bouquet is large in scale, reflecting the intensity and expansive personality of this warm vintage. The tannins are elegantly integrated, and the wine leaves a lasting and beautiful impact on the palate." - Monica Larner (Robert Parker)

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine.
