2013 Fratelli Brovia Barolo Garblet SueRosenthal
This is a dynamic wine filled with surprises. From 35 year-old vines on a ¾ hectare hillside site in Castiglione Falletto, the wine is a fraternal twin to the more stern and imposing “Villero” with the classic restrained power of the best of the wines from Castiglione Falleto. It distinguishes itself by its enormous energy, a positive and heady wine with a gorgeous interplay of black fruits and minerals. The lively presence on the palate reminds one of the remarkable ability of Nebbiolo to retain its vibrant acidity while building its sugar reserves.
