In 1863 Giacinto Brovia founded the Brovia estate in the village of Castiglione Falletto, in the heart of the Barolo district. The family has been continually engaged in the growing of grapes and the production of wine since that time. The phylloxera plague, economic upheaval and two wars interrupted production for almost 30 years but, in 1953, two brothers, Giacinto and Raffaele, grandchildren of the founder, resumed full-scale wine production. Giacinto, a trained enologist, was responsible for the production of the wine while Raffaele, a trained agronomist, supervised the vineyard work. Sadly, Raffaele passed away in 2011, and Giacinto in 2014, but Giacinto’s daughter Elena and her husband Alex Sanchez are now completely engaged as the fourth generation in the affairs of this family-run estate.

  • Winemaker: Elena and Alex Sanchez
  • Farming: Organic
  • Variety: Arneis
  • Terroir: From a southeast-facing .8-ha plot near Vezza d'Alba on sandy soils, vines planted in 1980.
  • Vinification: Hand harvested. After total destemming and a brief skin maceration, wine ferments spontaneously in stainless steel tanks. Unfined and unfiltered.
  • Aging:  Wine remains on lees until assemblage prior to bottling, 6 months in tank.
  • Tasting Notes: A perfect encapsulation of Roero Arneis: a mineral spine with notes of stone fruits and citrus define this wine. While much Piedmontese Arneis is decidedly neutral or subject to heavy new oak treatment, Brovia's version gracefully expresses its Roero origins with balance, intensity, length, and concentration
