Piedmont, Italy

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 Garblèt Sue' in Castiglione Falletto and Ca'Mia and Brea in Serralunga d'Alba.

More Info

The manual harvest of the grapes takes place at the half of October. With controlled temperature (about 28°C) for a period of 15 - 20 days. The ageing takes place in French oak (mid size barrels of 30 Hl.), where the wine is allowed to mature for 2 years. After the ageing, the wine is put in the bottles without any filtration. The refining is carried out in a place at constant temperature and right humidity, protected from sunlight and artificial light.

"The 2015 Barolo Brea Vigna Ca' Mia captures all the best the vintage has to offer. Black cherry, plum, espresso, sage, menthol, licorice and leather are all kicked up a few notches in a decidedly dark, strapping Barolo that screams with Serralunga character. Exotic, dark and totally alluring, the 2015 has a very bright future, but readers should be prepared to be patient, as the tannins clearly need time to soften."

"The Brovia 2015 Barolo Brea Vigna Ca' Mia offers good balance and an authentic representation of the vintage. You can sense some of the heat of the growing season here, thanks to the wine's open and accessible persona; it enters the palate with softness and elegance. This was the first of the single-vineyard wines from Brovia released this year that I tasted in a flight meant to increase in intensity."

"Entirely owned by the Brovia family, the Brea cru in Serralunga d'Alba is a mixture of clay and sand with significant limestone. The oldest vines, over 60 years old, are selected for the Vigna Ca' Mia, while the younger ones are blended in their excellent classic Barolo. Mint, star-anise and wild forest strawberries surge from the glass in this powerful but beautifully textured, refined, mineral-driven and captivating wine. The vineyard is certified organic as of 2013."

"The 2013 Barolo Brea Vigna Ca' Mia captures the essence of this striking hillside site. A host of lavender, violet, menthol, licorice and tar notes open up first. Wonderfully translucent and yet powerful, the 2013 bristles with energy and pure class. Here, too, the tannins are remarkably polished for a young Serralunga Barolo. Dense, dark and powerful, with nearly buried tannins, the 2013 Ca' Mia is a superb wine with a very bright future."

"The 2013 Barolo Brea Vigna Ca' Mia offers beautiful dimension and depth with a slightly more robust or powerful approach. The fruit is carefully ripened to show dark plum and blackberry nuances. Delicate notes of spice, tar and tobacco give substance and length to the palate."

"The 2012 Barolo Brea Vigna Ca' Mia shows a much more finessed side of this great Serralunga site rather than the power that is much more typical. Rose petal, lavender, mint, sweet red cherries, licorice and dried herbs are laced together in a feminine, gracious Barolo endowed with striking translucence and pure class. Although not especially typical of its site, and a bit light relative to some recent vintages, the 2012 Ca' Mia is stunningly beautiful just the same."

"The 2012 Barolo Brea Vigna Ca' Mia is a well textured and constructed wine that offers a less elaborate expression of Nebbiolo. The wine speaks in a clear voice and uses a simple vocabulary. Soft tannins segue to a fruity approach and there are end notes of cherry, cola, tar and licorice. This Barolo is easy and more approachable for medium-term consumption."

2011 -

"Lavender, mint, sage, smoke, tobacco and plums are all laced together in the 2011 Barolo Brea Vigna Ca'Mia. As always, the Ca'Mia is a decidedly vertical Barolo built on a spine of persistent tannin, but in 2011 there is a little bit of added polish that serves to soften the contours. Tucked off the main road, Brea remains one of the least well-known vineyards in Serralunga. The 2011 is a great wine to start exploring some of the nuances of this site. A huge finish that brings together power and voluptuousness captures the pure radiance of the year."
