    Product information

    Azienda Agriciola Brovia is a family wine estate founded in 1863, and located within the Barolo DOCG of Piedmont. All production comes from estate vineyards, and the estate has some of the best holdings in the region, with three plots in Castiglione Falletto in the Rocche and Villero crus and the Garblèt Sue section of Bricco Fiasco, and a fourth in the Ca'Mia vineyard in Serralunga d'Alba. Each of these has its own single vineyard Barolo cuvée; together these are the flagship wines of the estate.

    Brovia also makes a generic Barolo from fruit from both areas, and a Barbaresco from the Rio Sordo vineyard. The Nebbiolo line up is completed by the Valmaggiore Nebbiolo d'Alba from the vineyard of the same name in Vezza d'Alba. There are three Dolcetto d'Alba wines, two from the Ca'Mia vineyard and the third from across the estate. Finally, there are two Barbera d'Alba cuvées, one from Ca'Mia and the other from Garblèt.

    The winemaking is traditional, and wines are aged in Slavonian and French oak casks of around 3000 liters in size. Viticulture has been fully organic since 2010. “Rocche di Castiglione” is arguably the most finessed and approachable of the three wines, hailing from a site that faces southeast and sits at an altitude of about 350 meters. The 1.5 hectare Brovia site has a sandier composition than many sites in Castiglione Falletto, which may account for its more refined tannins. Only about 1,200 bottles are exported to the US each vintage.
