2015 brovia, barolo, villero
Why We're Buying
Giacinto Brovia established the Brovia estate in 1863. More than a century and a half later, his family continues making some of the finest Barolo in Piedmont. Classically styled and utterly timeless, Brovia Barolo Villero is a must-have for wine investors.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Barolo Villero offers richness and darkness with fruit from Castiglione Falletto and it's one of the more intense wines I tasted within this selection. The Villero is a balanced and polished Barolo that opens to nicely integrated fruit and spice tones expertly interwoven and united. The wine has a beautiful entry to the palate. Indeed this pretty wine presented a united front with seamless and graceful integration.
Aromas of praline honey orange peel and cherries follow through to a full body chewy tannins and a long flavorful finish. Beautiful intensity and power. Drink from 2022.
The 2015 Barolo Villero is a very pretty mid-weight wine. Silky tannins and beautifully expressive aromatics give the Villero considerable finesse. On the palate though the 2015 is far less expressive. That is not entirely surprising as the Villero often needs a few years to truly blossom. Sweet floral and spice notes start to open with time in the glass but the Villero is not an especially forthcoming 2015 Barolo.
