Wine Critic Reviews:

Like the Rocche, the 2006 Barolo Villero is also made from a vineyard in Castiglione Falletto, but it could not be more different. Here the fruit is deep, dark and sensual. While the Rocche tends towards suggestions of floral red berries, the Villero reveals plums, prune, spices and menthol intermingled with a host of other balsamic overtones. This virile yet mid-weight wine is quite promising... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Country Italy: What are the first things that come to mind when thinking about Italy and Italian culture? There's one thing that nearly everyone tends to mention, it's the food - and where there's fine food, there is almost always fine wine. Italy is the most prolific wine region in the world, outclassing even France in terms of production quantity. Even if you're a complete wine novice, you have almost certainly heard of names such as Barolo and Barbaresco, Italy's most famous wine styles. When it comes to soil composition and other geographical characteristics, Italy offers a lot of diversity, and this never fails to show in the wines themselves.
Producer Brovia: There aren't many Barolo enthusiasts out there that haven't crossed paths with the Brovia family and their exceptional wines. With direct ownership over some of the most sought-after soil in the region, Brovia creates some of the most beautiful Italian reds you will ever encounter. With an almost impossibly thorough approach in the field and a level of teamwork that only a family could hope to achieve, it's not surprising that Brovia has claimed a very desirable spot on the market. Their wines are not just wines, but intricate, compelling artistic pieces, and few activities in the world could match an evening spent lost in their embrace. Exploring their work is not only delightful for your tastebuds but an enlightening and fulfilling journey that you will remember forever.

Region Piedmont: Italian culture values the unbreakable bond we share with family and very few things showcase that connection quite like a shared meal. Therefore, it's only natural that wine would also take its place as an important cultural aspect. Fine Italian produce always goes well with a variety of dishes, and that makes these wines an incredibly popular choice among wine enthusiasts who appreciate a good get-together. The foothills of the Alps help define this region's significantly colder, continental winter climate, but during the summer, the conditions are similar to the region of Burgundy. Flavor-wise, this region has a mind-boggling variety to offer. Not only is there a healthy selection of approved grapes to work with, but the soil often varies from estate to estate, letting every wine stand out. Expect to encounter powerful notes of rose petal flavor, spices, cherries, dried herbs, anise, and many more. Every bottle has a story to tell. Those of you with a tendency to hoard and collect fine wines will be especially intrigued, as Piedmont wines tend to mature extremely well, developing nuance and becoming more and more delicious as time goes on.
Type of Wine Barolo: Barolo have cemented their spot as one of Italy's most famous and desirable achievements, decorating the cellars of every serious wine collector. While the grape they're made from is rather dark and dusty-looking, the elixir that comes from this varietal is an almost crystal clear, light red, like a pair of seductive lips glistening in the candlelight.
