2018 Brovia Barolo Rocche di Castiglione MAGNUMRegular price $599.00
The famous “Rocche,” in Castiglione Falletto expresses the elegant, "feminine" side of Barolo, always the most aromatic and sensual of the crus from Brovia. The sandy soil composition is in stark contrast to the soil underlies its neighbours in Castiglione Falletto. The Brovia parcel (1.5 hectares) of this vineyard faces southeast and sits at 350 metres above sea level! The vines were planted in 1966.
"Alex Sanchez makes memorable wines. His Brovia 2018 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione hits close to home, as this vineyard in Castiglione Falletto is especially elegant and well managed. The wine shows pinpoint precision with small berry nuances, wildflower and crushed stone. The mineral signature adds beautiful focus." 95pts! - Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate
