Wine Notes: The Brovia Vignavillej Dolcetto is manually harvested from classic clay-limestone soils from plots in Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga d'Alba. Some plots were planted in 1981 and some in 1993. The grapes are destemmed and ferment spontaneously in stainless steel for a period of a 7-10 days. The wine ages in stainless steel for 6-12 months before bottled unfiltered and unfined.
Tasting Notes: From old vines on prime Langhe slopes, Brovia's Dolcetto brings great complexity and intensity to the glass. While enjoyable in its youth, this cuvée can also age gracefully for up to a decade.
