Brovia, Piedmont 2017-2021

Always one of the most hotly anticipated releases of the year, Brovia’s Barolo's are an immediate requisite purchase for anyone interested in fine wine. These are some of the most highly sort after wines that we import - and you will not find a better set of releases anywhere in Piedmont from Vintage 2017.

The Brovia family winery was founded in 1863 by Giacinto Brovia, and from the beginning, the importance of terroir has been the priority of their viticultural style. Over the generations, an uncompromising attitude towards vineyard selection has allowed the family to extend their landholding into arguably the greatest of Barolo’s vineyard crus, including Rocche, Villero and Garblèt Sue’ in Castiglione Falletto and Ca’Mia and Brea in Serralunga d’Alba. 

Àlex Sánchez at Brovia
“Our 2017 Barolos are from a very good & interesting vintage in which it will be difficult to make general quality statements across the denomination. In fact many professionals, wine lovers and some journalists have just been starting to taste different 2017 barolos during the last months, discovering a good number of excellent wines that are far above the quality and features they initially expected.

The 2017 vintage has been characterised by an unusually warm winter, a frost during April that hit some positions (ie. our entire Garblèt Sué vineyard was burnt by that frost in y2017) and a very warm and dry Summer. All these conditions resulted in overall lower yields and a very early harvest. These were objectively quiet challenging conditions that have put to test the learnings of all the winemakers during the last years, often facing warmer vintages and sudden weather strong conditions changes within the same season. In our case, we are extremely proud about our 2017 barolos, believing that they express the positive aspects about this vintage while keeping in the same time aromatic freshness and complexity, wonderful acidity, a round and sweet tannin already with a good integration with the fruit and a nice firm structure that will allow them to age very well during the coming years.” 

This pre-arrival offer is all-inclusive. Meaning, the prices shown include GST, and there are no further payments required upon landing. The wines are expected to arrive in late April 2022. We will be taking payment this month to secure our allocation. So don't dawdle as they will sell out super fast!
