    Winemaker's Notes:

    The wine has a great balance in the aromas and in the structure. The color is intense red. The nose shows a clean scent of dry and sweet fruit and floral aromas. The wine is full bodied with a solid acidity that gives it more longevity suitable to stand the test of time.

    This wine is suitable for tasty and elaborate meat dishes and for dry mature cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Barolo is pure class. Tobacco, incense, crushed rocks and dried flowers fuse into a juicy, expressive core of dark fruit. The 2008 stands out for its balance and overall sense of harmony. Brovia’s straight Barolo is at once highly nuanced – which makes it approachable young – yet also structured and powerful, especially on the finish. Over the last few years this has been one of the very best entry-level Baroli. The Barolo is essentially a blend of all of Brovia’s single-vineyard wines and is aged in Slavonian cask.
