Winemaker's Notes

A very complete and long aging wine from a great vineyard of Serralunga d'Alba. The color is intense ruby red. The smell is intense, pleasant, balanced and spicy with a bouquet of plums, cedar, tobacco, liquorice, soy and floral notes. The taste is full bodied, concentrated and rich, with a firm tannic structure that classic Barolo needs for a long aging.

Recommended with: As with the Barolo Villero, traditional combinations are with game or red meat dishes. The great balance of this Barolo makes it very suitable also with mature cheese bread.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Barolo Ca’ Mia is a totally mesmerizing, hypnotic wine. The aromatics alone are head spinning; menthol, tar, incense, minerals, tar and dried roses rise from the most classic of bouquets. A blast of smoke, dark wild cherries and plums follows. Everything comes together beautifully in this virile, powerful wine that nevertheless retains the elements of finesse for which Barolo is often described as an ‘iron fist in a velvet glove.’ Sensual and alluring from start to finish, the 2006 Ca’ Mia may turn out to be one of the best wines ever made at Brovia. Anticipated maturity: 2021-2036. "

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
