About

Rating:

94

Brovia is emerging as one of the most faithful interpreters of the Castiglione Falletto territory. The 2017 Barolo Villero is very true to the vintage, showing that slightly lighter garnet appearance that is a common characteristic of this growing season. There are sure hints of ripe fruit, with wild strawberry and candied raspberry followed by sweet almond and delicate spice. That ripeness is offset and put into context thanks to the special mineral note that is ultimately what puts this wine into pretty focus. The wine is very smooth in texture, with tannins that are especially silky and subdued (a difficult achievement in this hot and dry vintage). The 5,000-bottle release Villero is more structured than the Rocche di Castiglione.
