Showing great class starting with the enticing aromas, this radiant Barolo opens with forest floor, violet, rose and wild cherry that mingle with whiffs of camphor. Loaded with finesse and energy, the savory palate features juicy cranberry, ripe cherry, star anise and baking spice framed in taut, extremely refined tannins. Drink 2027–2049. Abv: 14.5%

Brovia hits it out of the ballpark with this set of wines from the 2019 vintage. The 2019 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione is a darker, broader expression that stands on its own thanks to that special intensity. This expression veers toward dark fruit and black cherry, and there is a lot of iron ore or rusty nail at the back. The wine is almost sanguine in character, but in a manner that enhances all the other beautiful characteristics on hand. The mouthfeel is slightly more open-knit and rich, making this a better pairing partner to hearty meat dishes. Production is 5,000 bottles.
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.
