Brovia Barolo Villero is a remarkable Italian red wine characterised by its intense structure and robustness. Its vibrant ruby colour speaks of its appeal, while its engaging aroma hints at truffle, red fruits, and spices making it an enchantingly fragrant treat. The palate is alluring with a dense texture, and a perfect balance between firm tannins and pleasant acidity. This great liquorice-finished wine has immense longevity, enabling it to improve with age, truly revealing the classic Barolo style. Brovia's Villero vineyard yields an exquisite Barolo wine, which only becomes more tantalisingly complex with time.
Complex and gregarious, if very structured, offering an array of corpulent berry, plum, dried violet and tobacco leaf characteristics. Quite and extroverted and structured Villero but with more than enough flesh to cover the bones. From more compact clay soils than the Rocche facing south west, giving rounder more generous wines that nonetheless maintain a certain elegance. Aged in large used oak casks for two years.
