2015 Brovia Rocche (1.5L)

Nebbiolo from Barolo, Piedmont, Italy

B-21 Top Recommendation
Read More

There is no better, more dramatic village in Barolo to visit than Castiglione Falletto, the home of Brovia, one of the hottest labels in the Piedmont and a favorite B-21 stop. What a great spectrum, and I've got them all for you Barolo fanatics, at big discounts. The 2015s burst with the classic aromas from roses and incense to tar and smoke. In the mouth, strawberries to prunes and black fruits. So velvety you might not even notice the great tannic structure, but it will be in place for years. Brovia makes an unbeatable range, set by vineyards and not trickery of oak in the cellar. In France these would be Grand Cru wines, the very focused Garblèt Sue', the powerful Rocche and the sensuous Ca' Mia. We're in for more Brovia spoils from 2015.


Rose petal, fragrant blue flower, wild berry, baking spice, menthol and new leather are just some of the aromas you'll find on this gorgeous, fragrant red. Smooth, enveloping and loaded with finesse, the focused palate delivers pomegranate, red cherry, licorice and chopped mint alongside taut, lithe tannins and bright acidity. It's still youthfully tight but already shows depth and pedigree and will develop even more complexity with aging. Drink 2023–2035.

The Brovia 2015 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione (the last wine I tasted in this series of cru expressions) opens to the darkest color of this series, with a firm core of black fruit. This wine is silky and satiny in terms of texture—one of the trademarks of this sandy-soil cru in Castiglione Falletto—but don't underestimate that structural firmness that holds it tightly together. It would take nicely to veal involtini with asparagus.
