A classic powerful and full-bodied wine from a historical vineyard of Castiglione Falletto. The colour is intense ruby red with a light presence of orange reflections. The smell is elegant, intense, pleasant , balanced and with a hint of withered roses, plums, minerals, tobacco, liquorice, smoke and leather. The taste is full bodied, balanced and velvety, with a huge structure and a very long finish.
Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2009 Barolo Villero shows a little more fur on its chest and opens to gamey tones of cured meat and underbrush laced with rose, prune and cassis. There’s an interesting dynamic here that pits those autumnal tones against delicate spring flowers. In the mouth, it shows balance and finesse, but it lacks the longer persistency and the tannic building blocks of past vintages. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2020. (Jun 2013)
|The traditional combinations are, definitely, with game or red meat dishes. The balance of this Barolo makes it very suitable as a “meditation wine” to savour while eating grissini or small slices of toasted bread.|
|In the wonderful hills of Barolo wine, where the landscape begins to take on a different, more animated guise, there is a family that has always been associated with wine: the BROVIAs. The Winery had been set up as far back as 1863 and is settled in Castiglione Falletto. Paying always attention to the importance of the “terroir”, with time and an uncompromising attitude to the selection of the finest vineyards in Langa, the family has been able to acquire great vineyards in the Barolo growing area: Rocche, Villero and Garblet Sue’ in Castiglione Falletto and Ca’Mia and Brea in Serralunga d’Alba. Thus, the philosophy of the Winery is to propose great personality Barolos (as with the other wines produced), all made in the same way, but with very specific and clean characteristics, always different among them; Barolos that faithfully reflect the richness of our great Langa vineyards.|
