Brovia Barolo Garblet Sue 2011

Brovia Barolo Garblet Sue 2011

Availability: Out of stock


"The 2011 Barolo Garblèt Sue’ is remarkably polished and sophisticated, two qualities that are rarely found in this Castiglione Falletto site, where the wines tend to be much more sinewy and virile. White pepper, pomegranate and sweet red cherries are some of the notes that open up in the glass. The flavors remain bright, focused and beautifully delineated in the glass. I very much like the sense of energy here, although I have to admit, the softer edges of 2011 are incredibly alluring. Drinking window: 2019-2036. 93 points

Brovia remains one of the most impressive estates in Piedmont. Even after a string of impressive recent vintages, the wines remain less well known than quality would suggest. The 2011s will give Brovia fans plenty to enjoy while the epic 2010s rest in the cellar. The Brovia Barolos remain quite classic in style. Malos are done right after the alcoholic fermentations, often in steel. The wines spend a year in Slavonian oak followed by two years in a combination of French and Slavonian oak casks. Readers might also enjoy this recent vertical of the flagship Barolo Rocche di Castiglione as well as videos on the Rocche di Castiglione and Brea vineyards."
