Piedmont Elite:
2015 Brovia Barolo Brea - Vigna Ca' Mia & Villero

Posted by Joe Salamone

Brovia is at the top of their game.

The 2015s drive this home once again.

In the difficult 2014 vintage, Brovia chose to bottle their single vineyards in one bottling. We're very excited to have their brilliant single vineyards returning in 2015.

The Brovia style isn't shy on power, but what makes the wines so impressive is their finesse and nuance. The 2015 vintage dovetails beautifully with their signatures. The collection is seriously powerful, but also elegant and spot on when it comes to balance.

The Brea Vigna Ca’ Mia is one of Brovia's most loved bottlings. Hailing from Serralunga d’Alb, it's a bottle with personality to spare. It's rich, powerful, earthy, dark, truffle-y with a perfectly fascinating rustic side.

Villero is one of the top sites of Barolo’s Castiglione Falletto commune - right up there with Monprivato or Rocche di Castiglione. The vineyard faces southwest and has mostly clay soil, which gives the wines their sense of muscle, as well as their boldness and plush fruit, flower and earth.

To learn more about Brovia and especially their sites, I strongly encourage you to listen to Levi Dalton's I'll Drink To That! interview with Brovia's Alex Sanchez.

Despite being among the region's top traditionalists, Brovia's wines cost significantly less than their peers. It's difficult to know how long this pricing discrepancy will hold, but it's easy to assume that its days are numbered. For now, Brovia's single vineyard Barolos are some of the smartest buys around.
