Every so often, we taste a wine that is so emblematic of its grape and place that we’re momentarily taken aback.

Remarkably, Brovia also has planted a small parcel of Dolcetto in Brea. Brea is a magnificent site, and it is owned entirely by Brovia (a monopole). Now, it’s not so rare to have Dolcetto planted within DOC Barolo, but it’s almost always in “off” sites. Brovia’s is one of the rare examples of Dolcetto planted where Nebbiolo could be planted -- and make great Barolo.
