Lot #451. Brovia Barolo Garblèt Sue' 2008

Description: Consists of 3 Bottles, 0.75L
Region: Italy, Piedmont, Barolo.
Score: 96 AG.
"Brovia’s 2008 Barolo Garblèt Sué bursts from the glass with a heady array of black fruit, smoke, incense and licorice. The Garblèt Sué, from the Bricco Fiasco vineyard in Castiglione, is usually a much more linear, tense Barolo, but in 2008 the wine has gorgeous inner perfume allied to a level of pure juiciness that rounds out some of the rough edges that are at times present in this bottling. A huge finish laced with iron, asphalt and crushed rocks rounds things out in style. This is a super-classic Barolo from Brovia . . . . 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."
