Lot #102. Brovia Barolo 2008

Description: Consists of 8 Bottles, 0.75L
Region: Italy, Piedmont, Barolo.
Score: 91 WA.
"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 . . . . I can’t say enough good things about the Brovia family and what they have accomplished over the years, but especially over the last decade or so, which has seen them jump into the upper echelon of Barolo producers. The 2008s had just been bottled when I tasted them in November 2011. Now that the wines have been in bottle a little longer, it is clear they are fulfilling all of their early promise."
