Brovia Barolo Garblet Sue 2009 Product #27807 (In Stock)
Brovia Barolo Garblet Sue 2009 Brovia Barolo Garblet Sue 2009

Probably the least "open" of the 2009 Brovias, but promising great things 5-7 years from now!

"Iron, tar, scorched earth, smoke and game waft from the glass as the 2009 Barolo Garblèt Sue' opens up. The ferrous notes typical of this site come through loud and clear in the 2009. At the same time, the 2009 is surprisingly soft. At times delicate and even ethereal, the 2009 appears to be heavily marked by the vintage."  Antonio Galloni 90 points

"Wild, ripe aromas of red berries, plum, truffle and game. Rich and broad but currently less shapely and delineated than the Villero, not to mention less showy. Shows a larger structure reflecting its Castiglione origin, but this is also harder to taste today. The big tannins are less fine than those of the Villero. Elena Brovia points out that this wine is made in exactly the same way as the Villero and Garblet Sue, so the differences are entirely a function of terroir."International Wine Cellar 91+? points

Vajra Barolo Bricco Delle Viole 2013 Product #32720 (In Stock)
Vajra Barolo Bricco Delle Viole 2013 Vajra Barolo Bricco Delle Viole 2013

Since we first encountered it in the 2006 vintage, we've come to love Vajra's flagship Bricco della Viole Barolo.  The vineyard lies high up the side of the highest hill in the commune of Barolo.  The altitude cools the vines a bit, but the perch above the fog line gives the grapes loads of warming sunshine every day.  Only older vines from the hill go into the Cru bottling after a 40 day fermentation/maceration and 42 months aging in 25-50 hectoliter Slavoniann oak barrels.  The site and hands-off winemakinng give this unusual purity and elegance to go with the powerhouse structure and intense flavors.  The wine’s beauty is already apparent after 3 hours in decanter, but it will sing most sweetly from 2021.

"The 2013 Barolo Bricco delle Viole is a real head-turner. Sweet, perfumed, vivid and exceptionally beautiful, the 2013 is simply stunning. A wine of exceptional finesse and sensuality, the 2013 hits all the right notes. Today, the 2013 reminds me of the 2008, but with more depth, density and creaminess - especially through the middle - and slightly redder fruit tones."  Vinous (Galloni) 97 points

Brovia Barolo Rocche Dei Brovia 2009 Product #27808 (In Stock)
Brovia Barolo Rocche Dei Brovia 2009 Brovia Barolo Rocche Dei Brovia 2009

The most graceful, elegant, of the Cru wines from Brovia in 2009, but with plenty of depth, too.

"The 2009 Barolo Rocche dei Brovia wraps around the palate with layers of ripe, succulent fruit. Rich, open and expressive, the 2009 is flashy and seductive, in other words, very typical of the year. This is a fairly open, succulent vintage for the Rocche. I imagine it will drink well early and probably be likely to mature quickly as well. Dried rose petals, savory herbs and fennel add complexity on a finish distinguished by its grace."  Antonio Galloni 91 points

"High-pitched aromas of raspberry, rose petal and mint. Juicy, youthfully tight and intense; not a rich style but elegant and perfumed, with good supporting minerality. No sign of overripeness here, unlike with many other 2009 Barolos from sandy soil. Finishes with building but ripe tannins and enticing lingering aromatic character. Very refined."International Wine Cellar 92 points
