This bottle was also part of the really fun ensemble of Barolos, generously shared and curated by our friend Tim. Again, served blind after a lengthy slow-ox and we knew we were drinking Barolo but that’s it. No obvious signs of age. On the nose, bright red fruits, herbs, dead flowers and tar...but was all knees and elbows, even with all of the air it was given. Abundant structure. This had to be a classic case of yet to be realized potential. The shroud was pulled and...I’ll be damned, a 2008 Brovia “Villero”. I’m sort of surprised how much of an infant this wine seemed to be. I have little doubt these will age gracefully for decades to come.

This 2008 is great but doesn’t have the complexity I was hoping for. The florals are not as evident here. Lots of earth and rustic tones. I do love this producer and this 2008 is a terrific wine.

Elegance personified. There is no pint in preaching about wine to the meek. Baroli are amazing when done well as is this one.

14.5% abv. Smells of floral like roses, tar and balsamic vinegar. Very linear. Astringent with long finish. Almost like drinking earl grey tea with some wood thrown in. Great stuff!
