The 2017 Barolo is a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next decade or so. In 2017, Brovia's straight Barolo is quite floral and lifted in feel. Crushed flowers, mint, spice, blood orange and sweet berry fruit are laced throughout. As a reminder, the Brovia Barolo is a blend of all four sites the family bottles as vineyard designates, with an emphasis on the Brea cru. This mid-weight Barolo is all charm.

With 2+ hours of decanting it is starting to show its elegance. Happy to embrace that but it’s sure a long wait.

This bottle a little on the warm side. Maybe a bit tanned during storage at some point

Enjoyable now. A little lean but pairs great with food. Would love to try in 3 or 3 years. SS

Popped and poured...sooooo young but it’s already showing great potential. Fresh, bright red and dark fruit, roses and minerals. Classic Barolo. Surprisingly enjoyable to drink now but it’s pretty obvious that these will be at their best down the road a ways.

Patience is a virtue, but this is drinking so well. In 3-5 years it's gonna knock your socks off!
