Featured: Sites Set on Brovia's Dolcetto

Featured: Sites Set on Brovia's Dolcetto

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.

FEATURED: Sec Symbole with Depth

Occasionally, when we are tasting wines, something miraculous happens. A ripple of excitement moves through the shop. It starts with mutters of “Oh. This is good.” Then it grows into glasses being passed around. Second pours. We all seem to realize at once: This is good. Such was the case when we tasted Sec Symbole. It is really good.

FEATURED: Vadespino's Sherry Shines Against Champagne

Sometimes, when I’m feeling especially bold, I’ll tell people that Sherry is like Champagne. (notably, without the bubbles.) No matter how true this statement is, it still elicits a reaction somewhere between confusion and outright disbelief.
