Brovia's 2008 Barolo Garblet Sue' bursts from the glass with a heady array of black fruit smoke incense and licorice. The Garblet Sue' from the Bricco Fiasco vineyard in Castiglione is usually a much more linear tense Barolo but in 2008 the wine has gorgeous inner perfume allied to a level of pure juiciness that rounds out some of the rough edges that are at times present in this bottling. A huge finish laced with iron asphalt and crushed rocks rounds things out in style. This is a super-classic Barolo from Brovia. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2040.

Full deep red. Black raspberry coffee and smoky minerality on the nose. Sweet in the middle but youthfully closed hinting at dark fruits licorice and menthol.

Sweet in the middle but youthfully closed hinting at dark fruits licorice and menthol. Shows a more rustic tannic structure than the Rocche and Villero bottlings today. This youthfully tough Barolo will need at least eight years of cellaring. 91(+?)
