The "Brea - ca' mia" is Brovia's oldest vineyard, as well as the most powerful. This vineyard was planted in 1955 and is located in Serralunga D'Alba, which is known for Barolo with power. Even though it is young, and will last a long time in the cellar, this wine has such an intensity of aromatics it's like "The Wall of Sound." If there is one terroir you want to see ten years down the road from Brovia this is it!

One of the most incredible, yet unknown varieties in Piemonte is Ruchè  - pronounced ROO-kay. Why is it so incredible you ask? Because while it has floral, spice, and fruit notes, it is fruit-forward and dry at the same time – while also having a sense of freshness. All of those things make a total package that has you wanting to eat salumi for days. It can be like a still, dry version of insane Lambrusco. What else can I say - it's just a happy wine! Monferrato is where the best are from, and Zoppi Cristina is the Maestro!

Sandrone should be spelled "SandrOOOOOHHHHHHne" because it has brought OH so many good times. Their Cannubi Boschis brought Luciano Sandrone's winery to fame, which is now a wine called "Aleste", but being so rooted in tradition it is their "Le Vigne" that really showcases their style. Le Vigne honors the blending tradition of Barolo. It is blended with grapes from Castiglione, Novello, Barolo, and Serralunga. Each commune adds its own piece to the symphony. Castiglione imparts fragrance, Novello and Barolo elegance, and Serralunga the backbone. Together they make a harmonious medley that comprises Le Vigne. To me, the telltale character from Sandrone is a dried dark cherry element that combines with dried roses, and a long, fresh finish. 2017 is a powerhouse! This could be labeled as a cru from Serralunga it has so much intensity. A great wine for the cellar.

There are only a few artist labels that are synonymous with greatness and they are Mouton Rothschild, and our current offering Montevertine's "Le Pergole Torte." This single small production wine from one of the world's greatest is one of the most sought-after in the world. Since its first release in 1977 the elegant watercolors by Alfredo Mandfredi have represented pure elegance in the bottle - and it is equally timeless. It is 100% Sangiovese from Radda, in Chianti. Fermented in Concrete, and then aged in a small amount of Allier barrique, with the rest being in Slavionian oak. This gem will be an amazing addition to the cellar, and both the bottle and the wine will be a topic of conversation for years to come.

Brovia is a property that you have seen a lot of on our releases. Our very first release was the Brovia Barolo 2017, and it sold out in minutes - literally. The "Normal" Barolo is always released before their single-vineyard wines, and now we have the great fortune to offer you the small amount we receive. This is the Rocche di Castiglione vineyard, which is situated closer to Castiglione Falleto. This is the most fragrant of all their single-vineyard wines and showcases all the great aromatics of Nebbiolo while in its youth. Brovia always is a great indicator of what is happening in the corner of Barolo which covers Serralunga D'Alba, and into Castiglione - the power region next to the elegant one, respectively. The Rocche has Star anise, underbrush, potpourri, and spice which makes this a heavenly wine to drink in a few years while you are letting the bigger vineyards age more in the cellar.

SKU: Brovia Rocche di Castiglione

Rocche di Castiglione is known for elegance and aromatics, Brea is known for its shear strength and power, and Villero is widely accepted as the total package of the Brovia single-vineyard wines. It is truly a rare thing when the words "widely accepted" are used for one wine. Many can agree, but most argue over better, best, etc... However, we tend to agree with that sentiment. The Villero has the richness of the Brea but is not over-the-top. It also has the beautiful aromas which the Rocche has, but is a little more refined. A comparison I would use is I think of the Villero as the "Everlasting Gobstopper" of Brovia. It has all those attributes, but not at once. It is a wine that is forever changing, and you will feel like you are listening to a great playlist whenever you choose to drink it.

This wine is one of the last vintages which were made by Renato Vacca who passed in 2020 -  the person who elevated this winery to an even higher level than they were before. He also helped to elevate the wines of Produttori di Barbaresco during his time studying there. He was a quick learner, and the region was already in his soul. 

The Albesani is a very ripe vineyard in Barbaresco, with an entirely south-facing slope to give the wines sunshine all day. There is a rich, dark-cherry core to this wine, along with wild strawberries. Sandalwood, cedar, and potpourri dominate the nose and the finish, which is fat for Barbaresco. This is a great wine for a grilling out night, or let it decant for 20 minutes before you drink it.

In northern Piemonte are the regions that used to be called the Spanna regions. Spanna is the local dialect for Nebbiolo. Here the Nebbiolo is unlike most which people have had, as it is lighter, has freshness, and a delicate intensity - while also showing the power it has become well-known for having. Because of this more delicate style, the wineries would add a few other varieties to add richness and color, and those were Vespolina and Bonarda. It was, and still is rare for a winery to make either of these as a single-variety bottling, but when one does and it is mind-blowing. Colombera & Garella makes a stunning version of Vespolina that is named after the local dialect called "Vispavolo." The wine has power and richness with a beautiful cedar characteristic. As if you walked into a humidor with the most exceptional cigars. It is such an ethereal thing. This is one for the glass tonight!

We have a mantra at Sunday Wine that the most important thing about wine is always the producer first, then the region. A stunning producer in a lesser region will always be more interesting than a lazy producer in an outstanding region. But there are some regions where all producers tend to shine, mainly because a regional pride pushes all to excel. Chianti Classico is one of these regions in which just picking any Chianti Classico almost certainly guarantees a solid bottle of wine. Note the word "Classico" is imperative here. The word Chianti alone, or various other words after Chianti can be like Mr. Toad's Wild Adventure.

One of the greatest losses in the winemaking world was Pio Boffa. His winemaking style brought tradition and modernity together in one of the most heralded wine regions in the world. The wines he made were exactly as he was - powerful and elegant. There are only a few more vintages of the wines Pio made to be released, and this is one of them. The great Ornato is a vineyard in Serralunga - which on its own is a region of Barolo that conveys power. This 2016 is one for the cellar, or a long hang in a decanter for a while before it opens up. Your reward is fruit, fragrance, and a powerful punch! This is a true Barolo-lovers Barolo. The wines at the property continue to be in good hands with Pio's daughter Frederica at the helm. She spent years side-by-side with her father, so I couldn't be more excited to see what else is in store.
