Upcoming Saturday Tastings

March 8, 4-6pm
Fratelli Brovia: 2003 Barolo

The Brovia estate, founded in 1863, has always upheld a traditional approach to farming and winemakingand as a core principal. Today’s current proprietors, Elena and Cristina Brovia, continue this approach. The estate has holdings in the “Cru” vineyards Rocche, Villero and Garblet Sue (all three in Castiglione Falletto), as well as Ca Mia (located in Serralunga d’Alba). Their Barolo “Normale” is composed of grapes from younger vines in all four above-mentioned “Cru” properties. The accumulated individual characteristics of each vineyard enable the Brovia sisters to nurture the Nebbiolo vines to their peak expression.

Please join us for this first peek at the 2003 vintage in the Piedmont district of northern Italy.
