Barolo Villero 2012 Brovia
Barolo Villero 2012 di Brovia is a fine Piedmontese wine, one of the most interesting traditional versions of Langhe wines. It is the result of meticulous work in the vineyard and in the cellar where modern techniques are used, even if referring to traditional production methods. Barolo Villero di Brovia is made from 100% Nebbiolo grapes from old vineyards of the Villero cru cultivated at an altitude of about 340 metres, on calcareous-clayey soils. The grapes are carefully selected, then undergo a long maceration on the skins and spontaneous fermentation followed by malolactic fermentation and the subsequent 24 months ageing in large Slavonian oak barrels. It has a not too full ruby red colour, characteristic of Nebbiolo; on the nose it gives a complex bouquet of cherries, dried red flowers and spices, against a background of earth and roasted coffee and tobacco. In the mouth it is balanced between structure, freshness and tannin, where it shows a great elegance that will express itself at its best after some years of ageing.
