Brovia "Villero" Barolo, Italy 2017
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.
