Here in its second vintage, the 1996 Barolo Ca’ Mia is a dense, powerful wine. A host of red cherry, pomegranate, mint and licorice flavors hit the palate, followed by scents of iron, blood and game that give the wine a distinct element of wildness. The Ca’ Mia is powerful, but it is also quite rustic next to the other 1996s in this range. The Brovias bought this parcel in the Brea cru in 1995. Since then, they have introduced sustainable farming and a host of other enhancements that have resulted in more finessed wines. Brovia’s parcel in Brea is 100% Michet clone Nebbiolo planted in 1955.
