Rocche dei Brovia, Piedmont

From 50-year old vines planted on the dense clay and limestone soils of Serralunga, this is the most powerful and backward Barolo from Brovia. The nose yields aromas of chilli, earth, marzipan and pepper, whilst the palate offers compact red fruits gripped by chewy, dense tannins with a rich sweetness at its core. Less subtle than Rocche or Villero, Ca'Mia is more 'ruffiano' says Alex Sanchez, the estate's marketing director and husband of Elena Brovia. The wine needs time but will drink for two decades.

The Rocche dei Brovia estate

Classic, concentrated but elegant Nebbiolos, a stunningly powerful modern Dolcetto and an Arneis (white) as beautiful as it is saught-after, from the well-placed crus of 143-year old Brovia estate in Castiglione Falletto, in the heart of Barolo country and one of the destinations on our wine tour to Piedmont.

'Over the last few years this estate has turned out a number of terrific wines that exemplify the new traditionalism of Barolo, faithfully expressing the distinct qualities of varietal, vintage and terroir in a style that is classic yet accessible at the same time. The estate works with old vines in some of the most prestigious sites in Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga. The average age of the plants is 30 years for Garblet Sue (also known as Bricco Fiasco), 40 for Villero and Rocche, and 50 for Ca’ Mia (also known as Voghera/Brea). Readers seeking fine, traditionally made Barolos would do well to check out these wines, which also happen to be among the most compelling values in the region.' Robert Parker 03/06
