Brovia Barolo DOCG 'Brovia', Nebbiolo, Piedmont, Italy, 2017
This cuvée is a blend of the younger vines found in the various “crus”. Since its inception, the Barolo has offered a stylish take on the Brovia approach to this appellation. There is never excess here, no attempt to showboat or to flaunt an image of power. Above all, balance is the key element in faithfully rendering a Barolo of great stature. You will find here the classic grainy tannins, the long, mineral-inflected finish, the aromas of late-summer roses and flavors of dried cherries. After a fermentation of approximately three weeks, the wine is aged for at least two years in a combination of large and medium-sized barrels of Slavonian and French origin.
Pairs well with: Grilled meats, roast duck, and slow cooked pork
