Tasting Notes

An exotic, flashy beauty, the 2007 Barolo Rocche dei Brovia boasts gorgeous depth and raciness. This is one of the more voluptuous wines in this vertical. As always, the Rocche is the Brovia Barolo that is most marked in warmer years. The 2007 is an especially dense, racy Rocche, but it nevertheless possesses terrific overall balance, a testament to Rocche's position as one of the truly great vineyard sites in Barolo. Hints of rose petal, mint, licorice and red stone fruits wrap around the super-expressive finish. Giacinto Brovia used to say in his 60 harvests 2007 was a vintage without precedent. “It was a very relaxed harvest,” adds Cristina Brovia, “because it never rained. We were never forced to pick under the threat of poor weather.” According to Elena Brovia “Things were harder in the cellar. Sugars and alcohols were higher than normal.” 2017-2032
