Each year, we eagerly await our Brovia allocation.
They are among Barolo's great traditionalists and recent vintages have been showing this estate at the height of its powers.
Today, we're happy to offer Brovia's 2017 Barolo Brea - Ca'Mia for $95.95 per bottle.
Before continuing I should mention that 2017 was a short vintage at Brovia and we have much less wine available than we usually do.
Out of Brovia's crus, Ca'Mia is particularly fascinating. It has personality to spare. There's an unmistakable power, richness, and earthy and truffle-y profile.
In Piedmont, 2017 brought a warm vintage feel to the Ca'Mia endowing it with a layer of lush, spice-inflected fruit. What's really impressive about the 2017 Ca'Mia is how it manages to be light on its feet and vigorous. There's explosive aromatics of dried flowers, earth, spice, dark fruits, and crushed rock.
I'll wrap this up. Brovia is consistently one of our most popular Piedmont offers and the wines never stay in inventory for long. Give us your ideal order, and we'll try our best.
To order, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the store at (212) 980-9463.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2017 Barolo Brea Vigna Ca' Mia is an exotic, intriguing wine. Sage, mint, black cherry, gravel, licorice, rose petal and smoke infuse the Ca' Mia with a good deal of Serralunga wildness. There is plenty of tannin, so readers will have to be patient. Even so, the 2017 comes across as a bit light in body and overall depth relative to the norm.."
