Another absolute stunner, the 2019 Brovia Barolo Brea Vigna Ca' Mia is magnificent. It opens with intense aromas recalling pine forest, wet stone, wild berry, dog rose, new leather and spice. Focused, full-bodied and firm, the delicious palate delivers succulent black cherry, crushed rasberry, blood orange and licorice before closing on an iron-like mineral note. Tightly knit, fine-grained tannins provide the backbone while bright acidity keeps it impeccably balanced and lends youthful tension. This is one to lay down for decades. Drink 2031–2059. Abv: 14.5%

With the cream-colored label, the 2019 Barolo Brea Vigna Ca' Mia is another standout wine from one of the most collectible producers in the appellation. The wine from vintners Elena Brovia and Alex Sanchez is especially sharp, focused and polished. You get a lot of satisfaction here and sophistication too, with an amazing sense of clarity and depth. Wild berry, cassis, blood orange, iris and campfire ash emerge from the bouquet. There is drying mineral on the silky close. This is one of my favorite wines of the vintage.
Elena Brovia and Alex Sanchez delivered an exceptional set of new releases. They also have some exciting news to report, including the acquisition of two parcels in Serralunga d'Alba. The 2019 Dolcetto d'Alba Solatio (which I did not taste) is being reintroduced after being out of the market since the 2009 vintage, and there is a new Metodo Classico sparkling wine in the works.
